Summary

In order to prove to his mother that he does respect teaching and learning, Barry decides to share his hockey knowledge with a talented teammate.


Summary

Some players live to score; others live to stop them. That's Barry: a defenseman's defenseman who can stop anything and anyone anytime on the ice. But off the ice he's beginning to shut down. And now his parents want him to prove that he can think as well as play. So Barry decides to take on a student. He'll teach everything he knows about his best subject. The pupil will be his favorite defenseman and the subject will be ice hockey--where there's a lot more going on than one might think.
