Michael Ontkean


Canadian actor Michael Ontkean was born on this day in 1946 in Vancouver. Ontkean played hockey player Ned Braden in the 1977 cult classic, “Slapshot.” He is also well known for his role as Harry S. Truman on the television show “Twin Peaks,” which, like Slap Shot, has a devoted cult following.

Canadians love the movie “Slap Shot” because it is the greatest hockey movie ever made. Come down to the school library to check out our display of all things hockey, as we celebrate our great game.
