Thanks to his impeccable comedic timing, Shaun Weiss, as overweight goalie Greg Goldberg became an instant fan favorite. Unfortunately, he was initially terrified of the puck coming toward him, making him a less-than-effective goalie. Coach Bombay fixes this by tying him to the net and having the rest of the team pelt him with pucks.
It served the double purpose of giving the kids shot practice while also teaching Greg that his armor was thick enough to keep him safe. He is scared when the team brings in Julie as a goalie in “D2,” but his skills continued to improve, and he eventually becomes cocky. In “D3,” he becomes a defenseman, which he discovers is much more his speed.
Vincent LaRusso as Devin Banks
While he is at first a star player for the Hawks, the Ducks' rivals, it turns out that Banks was playing for the wrong team the whole time – he resides in the Ducks' district. At first, the team refuses to trust him, but his skills are too good to ignore. Unquestionably the best player on the team, at least offensively.
But he ends up getting injured too often, such as in the second film when he tries to hide his wrist injury in order to keep playing against Team Iceland. The rest of the team called him “cake-eater” when he first joined due to his richer family, though the term became one of endearment by the end of the first film.
Vincent LaRusso Today
After the end of the Ducks series, LaRusso dropped out of acting. He studied at Boston University's School of Management and graduated in 2000 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. He currently lives in New York City, where he works in the hospitality sector. In recent years he has become a regular presence at conventions, reunions, and other “The Mighty Ducks” events.
He made an appearance in “The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers.” He has had a few small roles since moving on, though they've been small and mostly for fun, including, bizarrely, as a bank robber in “Superhero Movie.”
Shaun Weiss Today
Instead of joining new projects, Shaun Weiss has had the unfortunate luck of getting caught up in problems with the law multiple times. He was arrested in 2017 for possession of illegal substances, and his mugshot went viral. He was arrested again in 2020 for burglary.
According to his social media, he's been clean and sober since his arrest in 2020. Keep it up, Shaun! Other than the hockey films, Weiss has been in “Freaks and Geeks,” “The King of Queens,” and “Boy Meets World.” THAT'S where you know him from.
Danny Tamberelli as Tommy Duncan
It's always a surprise to people that Danny Tamberelli's character Tommy Duncan didn't even make it to “D2” since he was one of the comedic highlights of the first film. As an original member of the team, he convinces his sister Tammy to switch from figure skating to hockey in order to help the team.
It's implied that Tommy acts tough around his sister, but she's older, and he always underestimates her, which results in her beating him at everything. Tommy was a defenseman on the team, but his skills were nothing special. Still, he got the audience laughing, and that's all that mattered.
