When he was a young boy, Jake McKay dreamt of becoming an NHL star just like Teemu Selanne. He never achieved that dream, but he did find a home in the Old West Hockey League as the longtime captain of the Hemel Hawks.

One morning, Jake wakes up to learn that the Hawks have been bought by none other than Teemu Selanne, his childhood hero. But to Jake’s dismay, it turns out Teemu is nothing like his humble, fun-loving public persona. He’s a narcissistic piece of work who appoints himself as the team’s new head coach and general manager.

While Jake struggles to deal with Teemu’s massive ego in the weeks leading up to training camp, Teemu’s archenemy – fellow hockey legend Brett Hull – puts a bid in for an opposing team. Infuriated, Teemu tries to stop the deal by bribing the league’s shady commissioner. But when the ever-resourceful Hully dreams up a scheme involving a dead ringer for NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, all bets are off.

Meanwhile, Jake’s lovable loser best friend and team equipment manager, Sniff, falls head over heels for Amy, the Hawk’s new merchandise manager. But if he hopes to see it go anywhere, he’ll first need to overcome his fear of pretty girls.
