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.Written by

Marc Maron filmed a cameo as an angry valet who the Ducks come across in Beverly Hills but his scenes were deleted. See more »
During the game where Bombay comes back and apologizes, the team performs the Flying V and the announcer says he has never seen the Flying V before, when in fact he is the same announcer that saw the Flying V during the team's last game in the first movie. See more »
Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez) is back to coach Team USA for the Junior Goodwin Games in California. Most of the team is back with a few new players. Some of them are really ridiculous. This time the big bad guys are from Iceland coached by an old nemesis. Iceland?? Everything is going well, until Gordon loses his way with all the hype. But the movie is lost way before that.
The genuine joy and underdog feel is missing in this. The characters aren't given much chance to develop further. Adding silly players with weird characteristics just dilute the product. Gordon actually said in this movie, "This isn't a hockey game. It's a circus." You're so right, Gordon. This movie is as ridiculous as a circus breaking out of a hockey game.
