Canada’s favourite sport gets out-of-this world treatment in this action-packed, laugh-out-loud graphic novel!

Welcome to the GHL – the Galaxian Hockey League! Isaac may be the Greatest Of All Time in online hockey, but he’s an epic fail on actual ice. Too bad nobody told the Galaxians! Isaac is warped away to become the new superstar of the planet’s worst team of all time. Fortunately, Isaac’s friend Lily tags along — and she just might be the best goalie this side of the Milky Way.

But the interstellar game isn’t quite like hockey on Earth. Opposing players are shaped like trees, or built like actual boulders, or electrified. And even if Isaac can whip his disastrous new team into shape, Emperor Mad Maroon still might put them all in the Penalty Box of Pain.

Can Isaac score a win in the big game . . . and get back to home ice?
