Cody Powell's Winnipeg hockey team, the Transcona Sharks, keeps getting better and better, especially with the addition of Kyle Kelley, the Sharks' top player and Cody's new best friend.

At home, however, he's still coming to terms with his parents' divorce. When Kyle starts abusing his star status on the ice and off, Cody has to balance concern for his friend with concern for his team.

Hockey Heroes sets the struggles of family life against a background of fiercely competitive hockey action.
