Description

Jason loves playing for his Calgary hockey team, but everything changes when he accidentally checks an opposing player from behind.

The player hits the boards hard and is seriously hurt, and Jason faces suspension from the league. Against tough odds, Jason must find a way to prove himself -- to his family, his friends, his teacher and to his team.

Powerful and entertaining, Danger Zone follows the struggle of an underdog -- both on and off the ice. [Fry Reading Level - 3.8
