Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
In the Western Hockey League, Ray Hockaday plays the center for the Medicine Hat Tigers. He has the skills to be a great player, but he lacks a certain quality to bring out the best in himself and his playing. Besides dealing with his own problems, Ray is helping teammate, Vladislav Malininich, a hockey player from Russia. Vlad, as he is called, has his own secrets that are slowly revealed. There's a mysterious van that follows Vlad. Even more intriguing is the tiny capsule found in the crown of Vlad's tooth. Ray discovers a message enclosed in the capsule and Ray's friend, Abe, helps to translate the message. As Abe probes into Vlad's background, there is more to add to the mystery. Ray is put to the test to use his skills and strategies to help Vlad and himself. This book is a part of the "Orca Sports" series that offers an easy reading level and high interest topics that may help to draw in reluctant readers.

Read an Excerpt

Big Frank tapped on my driver's side window with the tire iron. It was a gentle tap, but it sounded like thunder.

I shook my head.

He lifted his hand. Swung the tire iron down. I barely managed to shift out of the way as it crashed through the window. Pieces of glass sprayed my leather hockey coat and my head.
