"Justified's" Neal McDonough and Sony Pictures Classics' Tom Bernard hit the ice near Main Street for the game, hosted by the L.A. Kings' Luc Robitaille.

This story first appeared in the Feb. 1 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.

The real action at Sundance on Jan. 20 wasn’t on Main Street but at a nearby ice rink, where celebrities and former NHL players went toe-to-toe for a hockey match hosted by L.A. Kings Hall of Famer Luc Robitaille to raise money for the at-risk-youth org Echoes of Hope.

Justified heavy Neal McDonough and Sony Pictures Classics co-president Tom Bernard tapped sticks against the glass to greet their wives, and Smallville alum Michael Rosenbaum, benched with a case of plantar fasciitis, was the butt of jokes: “How’s your plantar wart?” one player taunted.

After the game, participants took pics with the visiting Stanley Cup.
