WORLD PREMIERE For over 40 years, legendary coach Neal Henderson has touched the lives of young people in the Washington, DC area through his youth team, the Fort Dupont Hockey Cannons. Founded to provide inner-city kids the opportunity to play organized hockey, the Cannons are the longest running minority-led hockey program in the country. As Henderson looks to solidify the future of the club, a new crop of teenage players struggles to understand if this game is really meant for boys like them. – Brandon Harrison
