The Hockey Tree
Owen and Holly are having a perfect day on frozen Humboldt Lake passing the puck around with their father -- until Holly shoots the puck past Owen and it falls down an ice-fishing hole. Accepting defeat, they think the game is over, until their father imparts some wisdom and solves their dilemma by teaching them an age-old technique of hockey lovers from the past.
On the surface, The Hockey Tree is a simple tale about winter and a great day of playing hockey; at its roots it is a moving appreciation of the joys and wonders of the great outdoors, completely Canadian in its depiction.
One Hockey Night
Owen and Holly learn that, with friends and hockey, any Christmas can be bright and anyplace can feel like home.
When Owen and Holly have to move from Saskatchewan to Nova Scotia just before Christmas, they miss their friends―and hockey. But their dad has a surprise up his sleeve. On Christmas Eve, the secret is revealed: an outdoor hockey rink he has made nearby -- and it's filled with new friends.
