Detective Murdoch investigates the murder of Archie Simpson, a hockey player who is found dead in the team's locker room. Simpson had earlier had a punch-up with his teammate Eddie Driscoll, who happens to be George Crabtree's old friend and the man who married, Lydia, a woman George had once been interested in. The team is owned by Langston Wallace who for the first time has a team that may win the Stanley Cup. There was tension on the team as well with new players arriving and rumors that one of them may be a paid professional, the scourge of hockey. Dr. Grace is having problems of her own when the case brings her into contact with Jerome Bradley, the man to whom she was once engaged to.
