Korman and hockey - two of Canada's favourites make for one hilarious comedy series!

Men are from Mars, women are from Venus. . . which is the only reason the Marsers can see why all-star captain Alexia Colwin didn't make the team. School sportswriter Chipmunk Adelman has a hunch discrimination is in the air.

Editorial Reviews

About the Slapshots series: "The concept is nothing new. . .taking a bunch of misfi ts and turning them into champions was common story fodder even before the Bad News Bears came along, and Gordon has visited this ground before with the Zucchini Warriors and the Toilet Paper Tigers.
