Description

A young hockey player learns about persistence and charity with the help of his hockey idol.

Riley is a Calgary Flames fan who dreams of playing organized hockey — but it just isn't something his family can afford. Riley is applying for financial help when he meets Flames captain Jarome Iginla! After learning that Iginla grew up working hard for what he has, and seeing that even with his fame and talent this hockey superstar is a kind and generous person, Riley vows to grow up to be just like him.

With financial aid, Riley is able to make his hockey dreams come true. He knows that it will take a lot of hard work both on and off the ice, but he's determined to play like Iginla, and more importantly, to be able to give back to his community as Iginla does.

Young hockey fans will cherish Iginla Sparks the Flames as a relatable tale of hard work, passion for the game, and following in the footsteps of your role model.
