Plot & Details
It's been 25 years and the minor league hockey team Charlestown Chiefs are still languishing in West Virginia. Player/coach Sean Linden (Stephen Baldwin) has taken the reins from Reggie Dunlop, but he's given up trying to control the "old school hockey" trio of the Hanson brothers (Jeff Carlson, Steve Carlson, and David Hanson), and their violence is the hallmark of the Chiefs -- they even attack the opposing team's costumed mascots. But a new (female) coach (Jessica Steen) is brought in once the team is bought by an exceedingly wholesome corporation run by corrupt executive Dean Claremont (Gary Busey) who intends to use the Chiefs as the hapless foils for the shiny new IceBreakers, hockey's version of the comic Harlem Globetrotters, with choreographed antics, guaranteed losses, and inept, non-violent play against a team of arrogant Ivy Leaguers. Can the Chiefs swallow their pride and actually go along with the scheme, or will their hockey instincts take over on the ice before a vast TV audience?
