A Goal in Sight
by Jacqueline Guest
When Aiden has to perform one hundred hours of community service, he is assigned to help a blind hockey player whose team is Calgary's Seeing Ice Dogs.
Aiden is the roughest player on his Calgary hockey team, as likely to be in the penalty box as on the ice.
When he hits another player after a game, however, he's charged with assault and sentenced to one hundred hours of community service. He's bored and annoyed when he's forced to help Eric, a blind player with the Calgary Seeing Eye Dogs. In time, his new team shows him hockey is more fun on the ice than in the box.
A Goal in Sight is the story of an unlikely friendship that teaches a troubled kid the value of fair play.
