Hockey camp teaches Nugget and his friends some important lessons about good sportsmanship.
Nugget McDonald has been looking forward to his first Christmas Break Hockey Camp for months. And now that school's finally out, he's ready to spend a solid week learning from a pro - Danny Holbrook of the Vancouver Canucks!
But because Mom was late signing him up, instead of working with his NHL hero, and most of his pals from the Cougars, Nugget will be training on another team. The good news: the coach is a two-time Olympic gold medalist. The bad news: Coach won her medals in women's hockey.
Nugget can't believe that his team, with a female coach, could possibly beat Danny Holbrook's team in the game at the end of the week. But with Coach Katie Gunnar at the helm, Nugget and his friends are headed for a big attitude adjustment.
