Power Play (1998)

Show Summary

Ruthless New York sports agent Brett Parker returns to his hometown of Hamilton, Ontario intending to move their NHL franchise, the Hamilton Steelheads, to Houston for a pile of cash. Once home, however, Parker becomes the team's new General Manager after the current GM dies in front of him. He sets out to turn the bumbling team around, while forging a relationship with his estranged daughter and clashing with the Steelheads' equally ruthless corporate president. The series was made in Toronto, and aired for two seasons on CTV. In the US, UPN bought the show, but yanked it after two episodes. Hamilton, Ontario is a real city. The Spectator is really their newspaper, and Copps Coliseum, where the Steelheads play, is a real arena. The Steelheads, however, are an entirely fictional team. Their name is a play on the fact that Hamilton is the steel town of Ontario. The steelhead is also a fish, which is the team's logo.
