When Alex shares the good news with Bombay, he also reveals that he has investigated her past and discovered her resume. He asks what happened to make him go from being the Minnesota Miracle Man to being the jaded owner of a stadium with a “No Hockey” sign.
Bombay tells Alex that he left the Ducks organization when the team focused exclusively on winning. That change of ideology was hard for him, and he did not want to be part of such an organization. Following his departure from the Ducks, Coach Bombay became professional hockey player Gordon Bombay. However, his professional career only lasted one shift because he received a severe blow and suffered a knee injury that ended his career, in addition to losing four teeth.
He explains to Alex that after the end of his playing career, he became a college coach and helped lead a dynasty there. Likewise, his college coaching career also had a heartbreaking end. As a coach, he tried to help a player who was having financial difficulties by giving him some money. At the time, he thought he was doing the right thing, and reveals that the player is now a professional NHL player for the Islanders. However, by giving the boy financial aid, Bombay broke the hiring laws. As a result, he was asked to quietly resign. Bombay was clearly upset that his attempt to do the right thing only hurt him further.
In the end, that led him to the Ice Palace, the ramshackle skating rink he currently owns and manages. It’s the only thing you have to show a lifetime of love for hockey. He inherited the track from Jan, who previously helped him land the Junior Goodwill Games coaching job in the second film in the original trilogy. Along with the track, Bombay also inherited the debts that accompanied it.
He ends his story by admitting that he doesn’t hate hockey, he just loves it. The episode concludes with the removal of the “Forbidden to play hockey” sign on the rink. This action symbolizes the journey his character has taken since the original film trilogy left him. Now perhaps Alex’s wish that Coach Bombay help him with the Don’t Bothers is close to being realized.
