Dean Youngblood, a teenage farmboy and amateur hockey player, is recruited by the Hamilton Mustangs in a Canadian junior hockey league. At first, the team treats him poorly because he's small and lacks toughness. But they have a change of heart once they see him play and score goals.
After getting embarrassed by the other teams' goons, and seeing his friend and teammate Derek Sutton put in a hospital because of it, Dean decides to give up on junior hockey. But with the support of his brother, his father, and the coach's daughter with which he's romantically involved, Dean gets back out on the ice and overcomes his fears.
Much of the film was shot in Ontario, Canada.
