Baker & Taylor Max and Marty Mitchell's cousins, twins Barry and Bert, join the National Hockey League but run into trouble when Barry gets involved with gambling.
It's 1936, and Max and Marty's twin cousins Bert and Barry Kapuskasing are players in an era when scouts moved from rink to rink seeking fresh talent for NHL teams. The twins prove to be a perfect fit for the rebuilding Toronto Maple Leafs, but, tempted by big city nightlife and some unsavory characters, one of the twins disappears. Now it's up to Max and Marty to find him and to discover why he vanished. The Kapuskasing Kids captures all the thrills of life on and off the ice in those heady days.
