Power Play is a one-hour series that takes a behind-the-scenes look into the dynamic and exciting world of professional hockey. The series follows the Hamilton Steelheads hockey club, and focuses on the lives of the players, coaches, agents and ownership. The series stars Michael Riley, Kari Matchett, and Gordon Pinsent. Riley plays Brett Parker, a jaded, big-time, big-mouthed New York sports agent who unwillingly returns to his hometown of Hamilton, Ontario to take over the management of the local team of down-on-their-luck hockey players. Parker's return to Hamilton finds him mending ties with his estranged 17 year-old daughter, developing a suprising romantic interest in his workplace adversary Colleen Blessed (Matchett) and perhaps even more suprising, a growing loyalty and commitment to the team - setting the stage for, as Riley says, "this guy's slow and reluctant journey to redemption". This funny and touching drama is now in its second season on CTV and is also now being aired on UPN.
