Trivia

The name "Eden Hall Academy" is an amalgamation of the Twin Cities suburb of Eden Prairie and private schools Cretin-Derham Hall and Saint Thomas Academy. In addition, Eden Hall's commitment to excellence in varsity hockey may or may not be modeled after Shattuck-St. Mary's, a boarding school in Faribault, MN, that has taught the likes of Dustin Lockwood and NHL stars Jonathan Toews, Zack Parise, and Sidney Crosby.

Goofs

The school's ice rink has banners hanging from all over the ceiling and an American flag hanging almost flush to the wall. The flag is hanging vertically with the stars in the top right hand corner, when in fact the proper position of the stars, whether a flag hangs vertically or horizontally, is in the top left corner.

Quotes

Coach Orion: Goldberg, when's the last time you practiced?
Goldberg: Well, we don't really practice per say. We either play or... play around.

This movie didn't deserve the IMDb vote it got.
10 February 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The score that everyone gave this movie does not give this movie justice. Sure, it's not a ten but it isn't a 5.1! Everyone is saying how the Mighty Duck movies were great for the first and second, but honestly I liked this one just as much! I don't care about budget! It had a great story line and a good lesson learned. It's all the same character actors and it's more relatable since it is high school. You literally got to see the ducks grow up, and I think that's why I thought the movie wasn't as bad as everyone says. Like I said, it had a good plot and a little bit of everything. Drama, humor, action, romance. It was great. Covers all the fields that any person can appreciate! All I'm saying is that you shouldn't judge a movie based on it's prequels. Give this movie a try, believe me. It's pretty great.
