At the end of 2009, Neil Peart recorded a new version of "The Hockey Theme" for TSN networks. For the recording and song, Drum Workshop built Neil a new hockey-themed drum kit. According to the DW drums article:

The set is airbrushed in Lacquer Graphics with NHL logos and ultra-custom Ice Blue hardware. DW Custom shop Artist, Louie Garcia comments, Neil told me he wanted to begin a new masterpiece with this kit. He really wanted it to represent the game of hockey, incorporating center ice and the face-off circles. And for the look of ice, we with went with a pearlescent color called Blue Frost. It really is a unique kit"

A new DVD was released in October, 2010, "Fire on Ice: The Making of the Hockey Theme."
