Jamie, the captain and star forward of the Comets hockey team, thinks everything is perfect. His two best friends, Jill and Brett, are amazing players too. The team is bound for the state championship. But when Jill is told she can't play on the boys' team anymore, and Brettt is hurt during a match, everything starts to fall apart. To make matters even worse, Jamie is pulled from his position to fill Brett's place at goal. Can Jamie make the adjustment and help his team skate to victory - or are they all on thin ice?
