UPDATE - 1/23@8:45AM: You can also purchase the video version at this link.

UPDATE - 1/21@10:21AM: Unfortunately it appears that currently only Canadian iTunes users can purchase the song (thanks hermy). :(

Neil Peart's new percussive-centric version of The Hockey Theme debuted last Thursday during the Philadelphia Flyers at Toronto Maple Leafs game on The Sports Network (TSN). The video of the song was posted to the TSN website shortly thereafter and has also shown up on YouTube. The video runs about 1-minute long and features Neil pounding away on his custom NHL kit along with hockey video highlights interspersed throughout. There's also a version of the video video with just Neil playing. As was promised, the song is now available for purchase on iTunes at this link. A portion of the proceeds will go to the NHL's Hockey Fights Cancer cause. Thanks to RushFanForever for the heads up. Here's the Neil only version of the video:
