The Twelve Trials of Jason Chimera

Fans of the Niagara Ice Dogs recite poetry during a home game intermission with local bard and hockey fanatic Gregory Betts, Associate Professor at Brock University.

The mythical adventures of Jason Chimera, a Canadian hockey player and his band of Argonauts, is from a satirical hockey card series that describes the journey in quest for the Stanley Cup.


The Twelve Trials are part hockey legend, part satire, part romp through the annals of heroism, hedonism, and the pursuit of mythical puck bunnies.
