Trivia: This is a small tidbit, but I thought it was a little bit interesting.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie he is not taken onto the hockey team. After he is hustling at the driving range he goes to toughen up. As he is toughening up, Chubbs unplugs the machine. The kid tries it, but he never plugged it back in and the machine still manages to work. (00:15:10)
