Because of a disability, Danny plays hockey with his friends while wearing a leather moccasin, but is not allowed to play in the newly-formed town team because he cannot skate.

Orca Book Publishers
Danny and his friends, Anita, Petou and Marcel, are typical prairie youngsters—hockey mad. The four are always playing road hockey or involved in a game of shinny on the community rink. One day a town team, the Wolves, is formed. The friends are overjoyed, but when the time comes to choose the team, only Marcel is picked. The other three friends are not chosen; Anita is a girl, Petou is too small and Danny cannot skate. It is the biggest disappointment of Danny's life.

But near the end of the season, the regular goalie is injured and Danny is asked to replace him. If the Wolves can win the game, they will make the playoffs! This is Danny's chance to prove that even though he can't wear a pair of skates, he can still play the game.

The Moccasin Goalie is the first of three books in a series.
Book two is The Final Game
Book three is Victory at Paradise Hill
