ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (AP) - A suburban Chicago native is bringing the story of the Soviet Union’s dominant hockey team to the big screen.

The (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1zaUPQm ) Gabe Polskey’s “Red Army” is his first documentary since abandoning his dreams in college of becoming a professional hockey player and turning to filmmaking.

His film tells the story of how the former Soviet Union used the dynasty of the Red Army hockey team for politics.

Polskey is the son of immigrants and a native of the suburbs of Glencoe. He has played hockey while attending Yale University and has made movies in Hollywood with his brother.

The documentary opens Friday in Chicago and Evanston.
