Jordin Tootoo: The Highs and Lows in the Journey of the First Inuit to Play in the NHL

Age Level: 9-12

Product Description: In 2003, Jordin Kudluk "Thunder" Tootoo became the first Inuk to play in an NHL game. Jordin has had more than his fair share of fights — both on and off the ice. He's had to overcome the social problems that are associated with the North, fight his way through the discrimination and culture shock he encountered after leaving Rankin Inlet and moving to Alberta to play in the Juniors, and see his way through the grief of losing his NHL-bound older brother and hero, Terence Tootoo, to suicide in 2002.
