The All-Star Team, made up of the Whl's young hockey players, is just one short step away from the NHL. Their goal is to beat the Russian All-Stars in a best-of-seven series to be shown as a television special. Hog Burnell, one of the biggest and toughest players in the league, is happy to be part of it. He could use the money that would come with a series win by the Whl All-Stars. At the very worst, it's a free vacation to Russia. It doesn't take Hog long to discover there's plenty more money to be made along the way...if he's willing to pay the price for it.
When seventeen-year-old Hog Burnell goes to Russia to play in an all-star series, he discovers that money is more important than hockey to the series promoter, which forces Hog to make some difficult and dangerous decisions.
