With cameras trained upon them, every member of the 2013 Stanley Cup championship squad became movie stars over the summer, but none more so than defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson, whose sweet moves had undoubtedly the best non-verbal moments in "17 Seconds."

The movie, which contains exclusive, behind-the-scenes footage of the team from Game 6 in Boston through the banner-raising ceremony, can now be pre-ordered on DVD and Blu-Ray. A DVD of the movie will also be included with every copy of the championship book, "One Goal II: The Inside Story of the 2013 Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks."

And now, it's Hammer time.
