Skip Haddock asked Tod, “Why didn’t you pass it?” Skip was the center for the White Knights Hockey team. Tod Baker played right forward. To d used a hockey stick that was beat up and hold. He would get angry when the puck went by someone or he hit it too hard. For Christmas, he asked his mom and dad for a new stick. He believed that his new stick would help him play better. On Christmas morning, he got it.
The fist day he played with his new stick he put it too high and was fouled. He put the stick in the closet and made a promise, “I promised not to play with my new stick again.” He did not think he deserved it because he played so badly. After losing the next game 3 – 2, Skip asked Tod where was his new stick and Tod answered, “At home.” Tod decided to leave because he didn’t want to talk anymore about his stick.
Tod practiced dribbling the puck with his friends at the pond. His game improve and he thought he deserved to use the new stick. The problem was he left it in his closet and this was the last game. Tod almost cried when his dad told him that he had been playing great and that he deserved to use the new stick.
The story ends with the White Knights winning 7 – 6. Tod was able to use his new stick, because he dad had already put it in the care.
Wing Man on Ice was ok. This would just be for kids that really love hockey and in 3rd – 5th grade .
