Past and present NHLers have made rare appearances on the big screen like Carolina Hurricanes defenceman Brent Burns who appeared in a couple epsiodes of the TV show Vikings or retired enforcer Georges Laraque who had a role in the movie Goon.

Retired Nhlers Brett Hull and Teemu Selanne are trying out their acting chops in an upcoming movie called "Minor Leaguer". The story centers around a long-standing feud between Selanne and Hull that plays out in the lower minor pro leagues.
The trailer looks pretty entertaining take a look!

More on the plot from the team's official website:
When he was a young boy, Jake McKay dreamt of becoming an NHL star just like Teemu Selanne. He never achieved that dream, but he did find a home in the Old West Hockey League as the longtime captain of the Hemel Hawks.
One morning, Jake wakes up to learn that the Hawks have been bought by none other than Teemu Selanne, his childhood hero. But to Jake's dismay, it turns out Teemu is nothing like his humble, fun-loving public persona. He's a narcissistic piece of work who appoints himself as the team's new head coach and general manager.
While Jake struggles to deal with Teemu's massive ego in the weeks leading up to training camp, Teemu's archenemy – fellow hockey legend Brett Hull – puts a bid in for an opposing team. Infuriated, Teemu tries to stop the deal by bribing the league's shady commissioner. But when the ever-resourceful Hully dreams up a scheme involving a dead ringer for NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, all bets are off.
Meanwhile, Jake's lovable loser best friend and team equipment manager, Sniff, falls head over heels for Amy, the Hawk's new merchandise manager. But if he hopes to see it go anywhere, he'll first need to overcome his fear of pretty girls.
It will be interesting to see how this plays out on the big screen. They are playing opposite roles of their personalities. Selanne will be portraying a narcissist when in reality he is humble and down to earth.
The movie will released sometime in 2024.
