The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers

Premiere Episode 101 "Game On"

In present day Minnesota, The Mighty Ducks have evolved from scrappy underdogs to an ultra-competitive youth hockey powerhouse. When 12 year-old Evan Morrow is unceremoniously cut from the Ducks, he and his mom, Alex, set out to build their own team. With a new group of misfit kids and an old rundown rink managed by a familiar face -- Gordon Bombay -- they begin a journey to challenge the cutthroat culture of youth sports today, and rediscover the joy of playing just for the love of the game.

DESCRIPTION:
(from Disney+'s web site, March 2021) The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers tells a new story about the world of youth sports today. Crazy pressure from parents, kids specializing too early and being told that if they’re not on track to go pro by age 12, DON’T BOTHER. In present day Minnesota, the Mighty Ducks have evolved from scrappy underdogs to an ultra-competitive, powerhouse youth hockey team. After 12-year-old Evan Morrow is unceremoniously cut by the Ducks — a team he’s played for practically his whole life — he’s heartbroken. His mom, Alex Morrow (Lauren Graham), has had enough. She’s been lugging Evan’s hockey equipment, driving him to practices at dawn — and now he’s being told “don’t bother” playing? She just snaps — getting in the coach’s face with the big question of the series: \"Shouldn’t kids be allowed to play a sport for fun?” Alex convinces Evan that they should start their own team, a whole group of “Don’t Bothers.” The underdogs, the misfits, kids who are too small or slow or just don’t buy into this modern sports culture. They’ll play for the love of the game.
