Plot

During a pro hockey lockout, Doug "The Thug" Glatt's (Seann William Scott) lower-league team, the Halifax Highlanders, receive media focus. Their owner, Hyrum Cain (Callum Keith Rennie), seeks to capitalize on the attention. For the opening game, Doug is made captain, but loses a fight with the rival team's enforcer, Anders Cain (Wyatt Russell), the son of the Highlanders' owner.
