A story about hockey and finding friends in unexpected places.

Jordy is wrestling with disappointment after his neighbourhood is vandalized by some teenagers. He is counting on his mom to go on a skating trip with his class and a shopping trip for a new winter jacket the following day, but because of the damage to their car, not only can mom not come on the trip, she can't afford to buy the awesome new jacket he's already picked out. Still, Jordy reaches out to help an elderly neighbour, who has lost her precious lawn ornaments at the hands of the vandals. He also discovers that the new kid at school, Ryan, is the younger brother of one of the teens picked up for the vandalism. When Ryan shows up wearing a new winter jacket of his own - and it's the very one Jordy had wanted - Jordy is furious.
