Alex Bucco was a teenager when a criminal syndicate killed his father. Over the years Alex maintained a strong bond with his mother and found his soul mate, Diana Cross. What he never managed to do was come to grips with his father's murder or to forgive him for creating the circumstances that lead up to it. Now his mother has died and he is without Diana.
While he struggles to confront his demons, Alex reunites with five former teammates to play in a hockey tournament that becomes bigger than any of them could have imagined and ends up changing their lives. As the team captures the public's imagination, Alex's past finally catches up to him and so does the danger that comes with it. As a result, he has to figure out how to protect the woman he loves and find the peace that has been eluding him for so many years…and win The Tournament.
