It seems Peter Kuiksak's star just keeps rising. The young hockey hero from the Northwest Territories is the top player in his league, being pursued by agents, and becoming something of a celebrity in his adopted city, Edmonton. But being the centre of attention isn't all it's cracked up to be. It seems no one sees Peter as just Peter anymore — least of all the star himself. Inspired by the career of NHL star Jordin Tootoo, is about one exceptional player's journey toward hockey greatness.
