Goofs

Continuity 

Around 50 minutes, Doug has several cuts and bruises on his face, including a blackened left eye, split lip, and cut through his left eyebrow. In the next scenes, the bus ride to Quebec and the subsequent game, his face is completely clear again - no cuts, no scars.

Dr. Glatt states that he might as well have "Security" on his sweater. The character is supposed to be an American, who would normally call it a jersey. Eugene Levy is from Canada, where it is commonly called a sweater.

Before Doug's first fight (as a spectator), the hockey player that eventually enters the stands to fight him had gone to the penalty box with his helmet clearly removed. In the next instant (before he climbs over penalty box) it is back on and strapped in.

Factual errors 

The two Russian players have the last name of Yakovlena, which is impossible since Russian surnames for men never end in -a. For instance, Maria Sharapova's father is named Yuri Sharapov. If anything, their last name would be Yakovlev or Yakovlen in real life.
Doug comes out of a convenience store in Halifax carrying a case of beer. You cannot buy beer at convenience stores in Nova Scotia (or, for that matter, in Manitoba, where the film was shot).
