StoryDoug Glatt, the black sheep of an illustrious medical family is working as a bouncer when he gets roped into going to a local hockey team's game by his hockey fanatic pal, Pat. When Pat incites the opposing team's enforcer to climb out of the penalty box and into the audience after him, Doug steps in and to everyone's surprise, especially the local team's coach, quickly puts the player down.
Glatt is invited to a tryout with the team and after basically taking on and creaming most of his teammates after they tease him about his lack of skating abilities, he is taken aboard. He eventually aquires a modicum of skill while crushing every opposing goon in the league. This attracts the attention of the Halifax Highlanders, the cellar dwellers in a league another rung higher in the hockey universe. They desperately need an enforcer to protect their star player, Laflamme, who has been sent down from the big show, having lost his nerve after a brutal altercation with a goon named Ross Rhea. Laflamme's succumbed to drinking and carousing instead of getting his mojo back and the Highlanders feel the only way to kickstart his recovery is to get him his own bodyguard. They trade for Doug and a very odd couple is born.
This is a much tougher, more professional league with bigger, badder enforcers all gunning for the new boy. A penultimate challenge is launched when Ross Rhea is also sent down to the minors after yet another violent attack on a player. Recognizing that due to his age and the league's decision to send him down, his days as a professional hockey player are coming to an end, Ross Rhea wants to go down in a blaze of glory by taking down the new kid.
