What do you do when the star player hogs the puck?

The Glenlake Hawks are gearing up for a big game against the Grey Wolves, a fearsome team with an unbeatable goalie. Luckily for the Hawks, Sam is a star on the ice, leading the team in goals. But when Sam's poor sportsmanship and bad attitude start to affect the rest of the players, Tom has to find a way to get everyone back to playing like a team.
