He’s small but he’s tough, and it’s finally JT McDonald’s year to shine.
He’s only grown half an inch in the past seven months, but this season he’s not going to let his size stop him. His blades are sharp, his body is strong, and he’s determined to play against the biggest team in the league, no matter what his coach says.
But a new player from a rival team may ruin JT’s plans to rule the rink, while trouble in math class could sabotage his chance at a shot from center ice during a Canucks game.
Can JT make his efforts off the ice start adding up, so he doesn’t lose out on his hockey dreams?
