Mitch Stevens is a pretty hot hockey player: he's fast, he's smart and he's tough. He plays centre on the A-line of his Toronto Pee Wee team, the Hillcrest Stingers, with his best friend Zack Andermann on right wing.
Mitch and Zack have been linemates since they were five, so when they have to compete for a single spot on the league's select team best friends become fierce rivals. Soon the pressure of competition drives them apart, and they're forced to choose between their friendship and their ambitions.
Face Off is a fast moving story that illustrates the conflicts that young people face in competitive athletics.
