Chief Honorby Sigmund Brouwer
Lauren Cross joins the Spokane Chiefs to become the first female player on a WHL team. For Chiefs goaltender Joseph Larken, the prospect of a season in the publicity shadow of the new goalie promises to be a nightmare. Hiding behind a carefully built wall of anger, Joseph is almost relieved by the steroids scandal that knocks Lauren off the team...until he begins to believe she was framed. The truth makes him wish he were some place saferlike in the net facing a 110 mph slap shot.

Yes, I was one of the best in the league. Not a big deal. I was born with fast hands and I didn't feel pain. The fact that Lauren was almost as good was a big deal. And she drew a bigger crowd. A lot of people wanted to cheer for her because she was a girl. And a lot wanted to cheer against her. I had a feeling she was going to get more ice time than I would.
