Jason Briggs dreams of being a professional hockey player.  He just loves the game and everything that goes with it.  He has had a bit of trouble in the past though.  You see, he has a tendency to be a little too aggressive.  It almost got him thrown out of the league before.  So now he is very careful.  And he is on an elite team.  Things couldn't be better, right?  Not really.  The coach wants him to toughen up.  What does he mean?  Does he want Jason to play dirty?  Won't that get him thrown out of the league for good?
