A 17 year old farm boy is offered an ice hockey tryout. His brother drives him to Canada. He has fast legs, slow fists, but is chosen. Will he learn to use his fists and play ice hockey the Canuck way? Will he get the coach's cute daughter?
The fight between Youngblood and Racki were the final scenes to be shot in the film early in the morning of the all night shoot of the final game before United Artists called from Los Angeles pull the plug. Writer-Director Peter Markle was amazed that everyone was still standing and alert after the long shoot.
I think all hockey players should know how to read and write.
In the beginning of the film, when they show Rob Lowe playing as a teen, he is shooting left handed. But Dean is then shown right handed when shooting throughout the rest of the film.
