Storyline

Gordon Bombay is forced to withdraw from the minor hockey league with a knee injury. Much to his surprise, he is given the job of coach of Team USA Hockey for the Junior Goodwill Games in California. With most of the Ducks and a few new players in tow, he sets forth for LA. All appears to be going well for a while, but the hype of Hollywood starts to get to Gordon, and he is distracted when Iceland, the favourites to win the title, appear on the scene.

Trivia

Brandon Quintin Adams and Kenan Thompson didn't get along during filming, which is one of the reasons that Adams chose not to appear in D3: The Mighty Ducks (1996). See more »

Goofs

A few players throughout the movie are shown shooting ambidextrously: meaning they shoot both right-side and left-side. Unlike switch-hitters in baseball hockey players either shoot left-side or right-side, but never both. See more »

The only decent one of the trilogy
16 October 2015 | by (Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

The first movie is as dull and cheesy as can be. The third is a complete letdown. I loved this one as a kid. Now, I can see how unrealistic it is and kind of dull. That said, it is the best of the three, and at least watchable. It teaches kids about teamwork, and does have a good plot. A lot of interesting moments that are very predictable, but it leads to a happy ending.

For a kids sports movie, this is worthwhile. No classic that has stood the test of time, but was good for it's time in the mid-90's when hockey seemed to be more popular nationwide. Worth watching if you have kids to share with who like sports, or if it's on TV and you have nothing better to do on a rainy day.
