Brothers on Ice

by John Danakas

Troy and Trent, who are brothers, both love hockey. When Trent turns out to be a natural in net, Troy finds he has to compete just to get a turn on the ice.

Troy and Trent are brothers who play on the same Winnipeg hockey team, Trent as forward and Troy in goal.

When Trent takes a turn in nets he finds out he's a natural, the best goalie on the team. Troy has to fight for ice time, and the brothers' relationship grows colder and colder.

Brothers on Ice is a poignant story of the struggle to learn what brings families together, and what drives them apart.

"...realistic, action-packed... a worthy successor to Hockey Night in Transcona and Hockey Heroes, with lots of colourful game action plus a credible conflict between the two siblings. This one should be popular with all hockey enthusiasts, and even a few who aren't."
