Does Mystery Alaska Exist? No, the town is fictional. So where did they shoot the movie? It was done at Banff National Park and Canmore, Alberta.
The film is loosely based on the 1905 Stanley Cup game between the Ottawa Senators and Dawson City Nuggets. The real New York Rangers players refused to participate in the film. The roster of players in Mystery , Alaska is fictional. Little Richard makes a cameo as himself singing the national anthem for the game.
The exhibition game between the Mystery team and the New York Rangers does take place. The Rangers lead 5-2 heading into the 3rd period. The Mystery team scores twice, but fail to tie the game in the final seconds of the period when Connor Banks (Michael Buie) hits the crossbar. The Rangers win 5-4.

Comical tale about the residents of a small, remote Alaskan town and their preoccupation with ice hockey.
