It is the first film in the Mighty Ducks trilogy\n\nGordon Bombay is a successful Minneapolis defense attorney of the Ducksworth, Saver & Gross firm, who never loses a case but whose truculent courtroom antics have earned him no respect among his peers. After successfully defending a client resulting in his 30th win, Bombay is called into his boss's office to be congratulated, but also chastised for embarrassing the judge. Regardless, he celebrates by going out drinking and is subsequently arrested for drunken driving. Bombay is sentenced to community service by coaching the local \"District 5\" PeeWee hockey team. Bombay has a history with the sport, although his memories are far from pleasant: Years ago, Bombay was the star player on the Hawks. When struggling to cope with the loss of his father, Bombay missed a penalty shot during a championship game, costing his team the title for the first time and disappointing his hyper-competitive coach, Jack Reilly. Bombay is obviously not too thrilled to take the team, but he reluctantly agrees to become coach so he can shape up the team for a championship.","leadImageMedUrl":"https:\/\/media.retrojunk.com\/file\/53188967c01a90f341537d74fa6f48c56952ca23c4eef44ade745a0b7f53747360bd9ab40ed73e\/image\/fa5_a10e0139fb__edbe7b7c33.jpg"}
