Description

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.

Editorial Review

"...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."

— Winnipeg Free Press
