|Ned Braden during a game|
|Occupation||Left Wing for the Charlestown Chiefs|
|Portrayed by||Michael Ontkean|
Being the leading scorer and best player on the Charlestown Chiefs, Braden is a skilled hockey player. But when player-coach Reggie Dunlop turns the team into a bunch of goons who beat up the opposing teams to win, Braden refuses to fight. He doesn't want to be reduced to that type of hockey.
He also has marital problems at home. He and his wife Lily Braden are constantly fighting.
Becoming fed up with Reggie and the team, Braden ends up taking off all his gear and skating around the rink naked during the championship game against the Syracuse Bulldogs.
