The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers – Season 2 – Episode 1 – Premiere – Ice Breaker

 

After winning back the Mighty Ducks team name last year, our squad-with-heart and their coach Alex Morrow (Lauren Graham) take to the road to attend an intense summer hockey institute in California run by charming yet hardcore former NHL player, Colin Cole (Josh Duhamel).

As our Ducks try to survive in this super-competitive environment, they’re faced with the question: Can you win summer?

Our Mighty Ducks, along with their coach Alex Morrow, head to an elite summer hockey institute in California, run by charming yet hardcore former NHL player Colin Cole. It’s invitation only, and the talent is next-level great. It’s SO great that the Ducks begin to wonder what they are even doing there. But when Coach Cole tells our squad they may not be a good “fit” for his program, they get fired up to prove him wrong – even though a mysterious camper warns them not to stay.
