THE QUICK AND THE DEAD

The coaches change their plans due to a large number of injuries. After a tiring day at the rink, the players get an unusual break: a paranormal excursion to some of Winnipeg’s most haunted places.

JUNGLE GYM

Unaware that a pro scout has come to watch them, the players start the day off with the wrong attitude. A fiery speech from John Chabot wakes them up, and the boys cap off the day with a one-of-a-kind obstacle race.

HIGH HOPES

While injury forces a star forward to make a difficult decision, the coaches focus on penalty-killing and power play drills. The players then test their brainpower in a difficult puzzle-solving adventure game.

ON TARGET

After starting the day with a weak practice, the boys show some much-needed focus, a quality that comes in handy during an end-of-day competition combining tag and archery.
