Hockey Night in Transcona
by John Danakas
Twelve-year-old Cody Powell is a wizard on the ice. For years he's honed his hockey skills by playing pickup games with his friends.
Cody Powell has graduated from playing pick-up hockey on the streets of Winnipeg to skating with his community club team, the Transcona Sharks. Coach Brackett is impressed with Cody's speed and stickhandling ability, and promotes him to the team's first line.
Unfortunately, Cody takes Stu, Coach Brackett's son's, spot. Cody is worried that coach is too hard on Stu, and that Stu has as much right to play on the first line as he does. As the pressure to win games mounts, Cody is torn between loyalty to his coach and loyalty to his friend.
Hockey Night in Transcona is a story about the conflicting pressures young hockey players face in their quest to succeed.
