SpongeBob amazes an ice-hockey scout with his skills while sweeping at the Krusty Krab. He soon finds himself playing professional hockey. However, when he realizes whose team he is playing for, and who he must play against, he begins to have second thoughts.
In the series, SpongeBob is known to not have much skill and knowledge of sports, as seen in the episode "Sportz?". This book must take place after that episode since he has a keen talent in playing hockey.
When Squidward tells SpongeBob not to do hockey in the Krusty Krab, he is seen wearing his Krusty Krab employee hat, but when the sports agent walks up, Squidward is not seen wearing the hat. However, when SpongeBob becomes excited, Squidward is seen wearing his hat again.
