Peart to record 'Hockey Theme' Add to ...

Rush's Neil Peart is recording another version of "The Hockey Theme" for TSN.

The legendary drummer will be following Simple Plan and the Barenaked Ladies, who also recorded reinterpretations of the iconic song.

The theme, originally composed by Dolores Claman in 1968, was best known as the music that opened CBC's "Hockey Night in Canada" for 40 years.

But CTV nabbed the rights to the tune in 2008 and it now accompanies hockey broadcasts on its TSN and RDS channels.

Peart's version of the song, which promises to be percussion heavy, will be played on NHL broadcasts later this season.
