Series: Lorimer Sports Stories

Rating: 0 vote(s).


Aiden is the roughest player on his Calgary hockey team, as likely to be in the penalty box as on the ice.
When he hits another player after a game, however, he's charged with assault and sentenced to one hundred hours of community service. He's bored and annoyed when he's forced to help Eric, a blind player with the Calgary Seeing Eye Dogs. In time, his new team shows him hockey is more fun on the ice than in the box.
A Goal in Sight is the story of an unlikely friendship that teaches a troubled kid the value of fair play.
