Eric Strobel, for those who aren’t familiar with him. The original Adam Banks fired a puck at his chest.

Touch and Go is a story about an ice hockey star who befriends a troubled kid and his mother after the kid’s gang tried to rob him.

The plot synopsis for H-E Double Hockey Sticks, taken straight from IMDB: “Griffelkin, a young devil-in-training is sent to the surface of Earth to steal the soul of Dave, a hot shot pro-hockey player aspiring to be the youngest man to win the Stanley Cup.”
