K-Gr 3--Danny loves to play hockey with his friends in their small Canadian town. Though he can't skate because of a ``crippled leg and foot,'' he plays goalie in his leather moccasins. When a town team is formed, he is cut because he can't skate. Very disappointed, his spirits are revived when weeks later the coach asks him to replace the team's injured goalie in the biggest game of the year. Danny steps in, plays well, and is invited to stay on the squad for the playoffs.
