Can Nicholas change his friend’s luck on the ice?

Nicholas and Jeremy, a new student, have a lot in common, but Jeremy has trouble keeping up with the other kids in sports. He tries hard but he’s always last to be chosen for a team.

Nicholas wants to help his friend, and with some coaching, and a lot of secret training, he knows Jeremy will be able to play the sport he loves best: hockey! After weeks of practice, is Jeremy ready to play with Nicholas’s team? A practice scrimmage will put all their weeks of hard work to the test.

In this excellent addition to the Nicholas series, there are a few lessons to be learned about the importance of sportsmanship, positive encouragement, and inclusivity — and, of course, triumphant hockey action for Nicholas and his friend.
