Movie Details

It turns out that New Jersey isn't the only hockey team tied in with the Devils in this made-for-TV comedy produced for The Disney Channel. Ms. Beezlebub (Rhea Perlman) runs a vocational school in Hades for demons in training, and she decides that it's time for one of her students, Grifflekin (Will Friedle), to head up to the surface for his first assignment. Dave Heinrich (Matthew Lawrence) is a rising star in professional hockey whose team appears poised to win the Stanley Cup. It's Grifflekin's job to get Dave to sign over his soul, but as he gets to know the young player, he's not sure if he wants to betray his new friend. His uncertainty isn't eased by fellow apprentice demon Gabby (Gabrielle Union), who has been sent along to keep tabs on Grifflekin. Real-life NHL stars Paul Kariya and Luc Robataille make cameo appearances as themselves, as does ESPN sportscaster Brad Nessler. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
