Some talk of a hockey player who chronically masturbates.

A man and a woman are seen having sex in bed. Her breasts are visible for about five minutes and she admits that she had been having lesbian relations with a woman. Behind her back, to a friend, the man calls her a dyke and makes another very crude remark.

During a hockey game, a player strips down to only his skates and jockstrap in the middle of the rink (his buttocks are shown briefly).

During a locker room scene, there are several posters which have women on them with their breasts exposed.

Many hockey matches turn into fistfights and often all-out brawls. Lot's of punching, kicking, hitting with hockey sticks, and slamming people into walls. Sometimes, people are knocked out, others are shown missing teeth, and in most of these scenes, the participants have blood on their faces and shirts, as well as bloody cuts, bloody noses, black eyes etc.
