Factual error: In the beginning of the movie when Gordon Bombay is coaching D-5, there would be no way this team would be permitted to play with the lack of and/or outdated hockey equipment. Goldberg has no goalpads, most of his skaters have no full facial protection, no shin pads and the use of bike and football helmets. From at least 1980 all minor hockey programs required kids to wear full face protection.
Continuity mistake: When Charlie is taking the penalty shot in the championship game against the Hawks, you can see his shot is low to the ground but in the very next camera shot it shows that his shot hit the top corner of the net.
Trivia: When Gordon and Charlie's mom are looking at the ice sculptures, watch the people in the background near the end of the scene. Just as Charlie's mom starts to walk away, a woman in a beige hooded coat pauses, makes a circling motion in front of her face then points at the sculptures. What she's doing is saying "It's beautiful" in American Sign Language.
