“The Hockey Hero”

was created especially for

James Scott Powers

at the age of 8

With Love From,

Mom

March 1, 2002

The championship game was only hours away. The San Angelo Raiders, Jamie's favorite team, were just one game away from being the champs.

Jamie had already invited Alysa, Gary, and Charlie to watch the game on television with him. All that was left to do was check the snacks and, for the fourth time today, study the team line-ups.

Unknown to Jamie, the San Angelo Raiders were in trouble. The coach had just learned that the star goalie had a sprained ankle and could not play tonight. The team needed another goalie.

7

“What about that kid, Jamie so-and-so, who you just signed,” the coach asked the team's general manager.

“You mean that kid who live in Bronte, Texas?” replied the G.M. “He's a little young and inexperienced!”

“Call him,” replied the coach, “and get him here any way you can, even if you have to rent a private jet.

The general manager, a bit nervous about tonight's game, still couldn't remember the goalie's last name. “Was it Leroux, Lamante, Powers? Yes, Powers, I think that was it”, the G.M. said and he quickly looked through the Bronte, Texas phone book for the number.

11

For Jamie, time was moving slowly. When the phone rang, Jamie answered. “Hi,” said the G.M. “I know this is unusual, Jamie, but we have a game tonight and we need you to play. I'm sending someone to pick you up.”

“Sure,” Jamie said somewhat reluctantly, knowing he would miss the big game on telelvision. “But I'd like to bring along Alysa, Gary, and Charlie”.

“No problem,” replied the G.M. Jamie quickly gathered his hockey gear and waited to be picked up.

12

In no time an official hockey-looking guy rang the door bell. “Is Jamie here?” he asked.

“Right here,” Jamie replied.

“Where?” said the hockey guy looking around the room.

“Right here,” said Jamie again.

“But! But! You look like you're only 8 years old,” replied the surprised official. “Are you that good of a goalie?”

“Yeah, I'm pretty good,” Jamie replied.

15

“Where are we going?” Jamie asked as they jumped into a limousine. “To the home arena of the San Angelo Raiders,” replied the hockey-type guy.

“The game is sold out. There will be thousands of people at the arena and another 10 million watching on television.”

“Sure, 10 million watching and me playing at the home of the San Angelo Raiders! Does he really think I believe him?” Jamie thought to himself.

16

page18

When they finally arrived at the arena, and Jamie saw all the fans rushing into the building, he didn't know what to think.

“Follow me,” said the hockey-type guy. “And don't sign any autographs - we haven't got enough time.”

Jamie followed, but now he was nervous. Alysa, Gary, and Charlie looked nervous too.

19

“Here's the kid,” the hockey-type guy said to the coach when they reached the dressing room.

“Where?” asked the coach.

“Right here,” he replied, pointing at Jamie.

The coach looked down at Jamie. “You can't be serious?” the coach asked.

The coach looked at Jamie again. “Did the G.M. call you?” he asked.

“Yes,” replied Jamie.

“You must be the best young goalie in the whole world,” the coach said in amazement.

“Yeah, I'm pretty good,” Jamie replied.

23

Jamie quickly put on his hockey gear and went out with the team for the pregame warmup. As soon as the coach saw Jamie on the ice he knew a mistake had been made. Jamie was pretty good, but no 8-year-old had ever played goalie in this league. “It's lucky that I can just keep the kid on the bench,” the coach thought to himself.

24

page25
page26

The game was incredibly exciting. There were hard hits, scoring chances galore, end to end action and great saves. As the third period wound down, the score was tied 2-2.

Jamie was happy. These were the best seats he had ever had to watch his favorite team. The game ended in a flurry with both goalies making incredible saves. Overtime was next.

27

In the dressing room some of the San Angelo Raiders started to complain about their stomachs. One by one, they went into the trainer's room. The flu bug had hit the team!

Alysa, Gary, and Charlie whispered to Jamie. “You may have to play.”

“Awesome,” replied Jamie.

Winning seemed impossible. With most of the players sick, the team was wearing down. And then it happened! The goalie skated over to the bench and came off the ice.

“Get another goalie on the ice,” the referee yelled to the coach.

The coach looked down the bench. “Jamie - just how good are you?” he asked.

“I'm pretty good,” Jamie replied.

“Out you go,” said the coach. “Do your best.”

31

Jamie was a pretty good goalie but these players shot the puck harder than anyone he had ever played against. The first shot whizzed by the net, missing by inches. Jamie never saw it.

The second shot hit him in the glove and stayed there. The crowd roared in approval but Jamie never saw the puck either.

Jamie's team played even harder. With a rookie goalie in the net, they knew they had to score soon to win. Then it happened! Jamie's team got caught up the ice. The other team had a breakaway!

32

page33
page34

The player skated in and blasted a shot - high to the blocker side. Jamie flicked out his blocker and made the greatest save of his life. The shot glanced off the glove, into the corner, and around the boards.

One of the San Angelo Raiders took the puck up the ice and scored. They had won in overtime!

Jamie was interviewed on television. He only remembered answering one quesiton. “Yeah, I'm pretty good,” he said.

Unknown to Jamie, the San Angelo Raiders were in trouble. The coach had just learned that the star player had a sprained ankle and could not play tonight. No other players were available. The situation seemed hopeless.

“What about that kid, Jamie so-and-so, who you just signed,” the coach asked the team's general manager.

“You mean that kid who live in Bronte, Texas?” replied the G.M. “He's a little young and inexperienced!”

“Call him,” replied the coach, “and get him here any way you can, even if you have to rent a private jet. All we need is a back-up in case of injury. He'll just sit on the bench.”

The general manager, a bit nervous about tonight's game, still couldn't remember the player's last name. “Was it Leroux, Lamante, Powers? Yes, Powers, I think that was it”, the G.M. said and he quickly looked through the Bronte, Texas phone book for the number.

The game seemed out of reach. With only six players, the team was wearing down. And then it happened! The referee called coincidental minor penalites.

“Get another player on the ice,” the referee yelled to the coach.

The coach looked at the trainer. “Anyone ready yet?” he asked.

“Sorry coach - no one can even stand up,” the trainer replied.

Jamie - just how good are you?” he asked.

“I'm pretty good,” Jamie replied.

“Out you go,” said the coach. “Do your best.”

32

Jamie was a pretty good hockey player but these players were the biggest, strongest and fastest he had ever played against. By the time Jamie skated into one end, the puck was already back in the other end.

Jamie was still struggling out of the opponent's end when one of his teammates shot the puck down the ice. The other team had forgotten about Jamie.He had a breakaway!

Page 35

Jamie skated as fast as he could. A defenseman was breathing down his neck. As he reached the net, Jamie looked up and saw the biggest goalie he had ever seen in his life. Jamie let go with his best shot.

The burly defenseman took Jamie into the boards with a thud. As Jamie got up, he heard the fans cheering and saw his teammates (all 6 of them) skating towards him. The game was over. Jamie had buried the shot in the top corner. They had won in overtime.

Jamie was interviewed on television. He only remembered answering one question. “Yeah, I'm pretty good,” he said.
