Hock E. Puck has no hockey stick, no relatives and no family to speak of, experiences bullying from the other inhabitants of the sporting goods store, and gets relegated to the "Bargain Bin." Hock E. Puck is eventually purchased by a messy sticky kid for 25 cents and gets smeared with peanut butter, candy, bubble gum and fresh cut grass. Adding insult to injury, the messy kid's mother sells Hock E. Puck at a garage sale for 10 cents. The new family is worse than the last one and Hock E. Puck narrowly escapes being eaten alive by the family dog, only to get whisked away by the street cleaner to the city dump, for more bullying and name-calling. After what seems like an eternity, Hock E. Puck meets Hock E Stick, an orphaned hockey stick who was thrown in the garbage by the stick factory because of a small paint blemish. Hock E. Stick helps Hock E Puck move to the hospital for repairs and sets up a home for both of them among the wooden crates behind The True Blue Hockey Crew stadium, where they are eventually discovered by a famous goalie named "Blue Blocker," become members of the famous True Blue Hockey Crew and lead the team to victory in the hockey playoffs. The book is filled with awesome messages about good sportsmanship, working hard to make goals a reality, the value of teamwork, the importance of friendship and the concept of "friends as family," which can be beneficial to children who do not have large extended families or "traditional" families. Hock E. Puck, Hock E. Stick and Blue Blocker discover that they need each other BOTH on the ice and off the ice.
