When Coach Bombay first joined the team, Dave Karp was one of the players that trusted him the least. Karp often responded with sarcastic quips when Bombay would say something, but as the movie wore on, he came to accept Bombay more and more.
He is a defenseman and is often light-hearted and comedic – he liked to play pranks. Karp is part of the cast of the first film that does not reappear in either of the sequels. Played by Aaron Schwartz, he is a secondary character that does not get much development, simply there to round out the team and grow the ensemble.
Colombe Jacobsen-Derstine as Julie “The Cat” Gaffney
With a quick glove and a quick smile, Julie became the team's second goalie to back up Greg Goldberg. She first appeared in “D2,” sacrificing playing for her home team to play with Team USA. Though skilled in the net, she can be hot-tempered and is flagged for kicking Team Iceland players in the shins during one of the early games.
A miracle save in the last second of the final game gave Team USA the win. She plays primarily in stand-up style, though she alternates to butterfly style a few times. Along with Connie Moreau, she's one of only two female players on the team in “D2.”
Colombe Jacobsen-Derstine Today
While CJD has done a little bit of acting since “D3” came out in 1996, she's focused most of her time on becoming a professional chef. She attended New York's Natural Gourmet School in 2004 and appeared on Food Network's “The Next Food Network Star” in 2007. Now she hosts “Colombe du Jour,” her own food-related website and blog.
The other roles she's been in include “Men in Black II” as a video store clerk, “Moonlight Mile” as Patty, and “Searching for Haizmann” as Hannah Allen. She is married to Jeffrey Lefleur and has two children.
Aaron Schwartz Today
Schwartz went on to have a relatively successful career in acting. His next film after “The Mighty Ducks” was as the lead role in “Heavyweights,” Gerry Garner. He was out of acting for about fifteen years, from 1995 to 2009, when he then got a recurring role on the show “Gossip Girl.”
He was also on a few episodes of “The Adventures of Pete & Pete” along with fellow Ducks actor Danny Tamberelli. “Gossip Girl” got his career going again, appearing in numerous episodes of television and movies. He was, weirdly, the facial reference for “Young Ego” in “Guardians of the Galaxy 2.” Imagine having to explain that one when you go in for an interview.
J.D. Daniels as Peter Mark
Rarely seen without his backward baseball cap, Mark was the most sarcastic and the rudest member of the team in the first movie, especially to Banks. He's the biggest troublemaker on the team, and he's the player that leads a walkout on Coach Bombay after hearing Bombay say something about the team – though the quote was out of context and misinterpreted.
He thinks he's a hotshot, often wearing a leather jacket, and often overhears things without fully understanding them. Played by J.D. Daniels; he's a defenseman who doesn't appear on the team after the first movie.
