Rush drummer/percussionist/lyricist Neil Peart’s version of The Hockey Theme will premiere tonight at 7 o’clock on NHL on TSN in Canada during the Toronto Maple Leafs game against the Philadelphia Flyers.
Being Rush fan and a follower of all things NHL, I’m excited that Mr Peart was included in this effort. Being in the US (and not being a subscriber of the NHL Center Ice cable package), I will not be able to hear the song tonight. However, The Hockey Theme will be available on iTunes this coming Tuesday, January 19th.
There is a complete story on the TSN website.
A preview of the song is available on YouTube.

EDIT – Well, it didn’t take long at all for the video to be posted on YouTube. Good stuff.
