In post-apocalyptic Canada, guns don’t kill people – slapshots do. For the mutated tribes trying to survive nuclear winter – which is like normal Canadian winter, just more radioactive – Hockey serves as a form of ritual warfare in which communities gamble their resources on the abilities of their squad to score goals and bust heads on the ice. With team captain Skully injured, manager Lizzy must step into his skates and lead the Edmonton Atomics – Squid, Stretch and Ugly Dave – against a new threat from the north: Boos Hog and his Rig Pigs. In her first game since the end of the world, Lizzy must line up across from an abrasive, refrigerator-sized pig-man… so that should go smoothly.
