Jason's rough moves on the ice nearly got him kicked out of the hockey league, but he's learned to keep his aggression in check. Now he's on an elite team and his new coach is pressuring him to return to his old ways. If he doesn't toughen up, he might lose his spot on the team. But if he starts playing dirty, he could get kicked out of the league. Jason finds himself fighting to play fair in this exciting and often comic sequel to Power Play and Danger Zone.
