The hockey documentary film "Ice Guardians" premiered Monday night at the Pageant. Former Blues enforcer Kelly Chase was a producer of the documentary on the NHL's tough guys, of "goons" who's job was to protect the top scoring players on their respective teams. The league has since gotten away from the enforcer type players on every team. Fighting is still a part of the sport, but not commonplace, like it used to be in the 1970's, 80's and 90's.  Two former top NHL tough guys, Dave Semenko and Joe Kocur were in St. Louis for the premiere of "Ice Guardians".
