It’s hockey with heart, all wrapped up in an action-packed Christmas story!

The tree is tinseled, the cookies are baked and the Zamboni machine is decorated. Brady loves Christmas almost as much as he loves hockey! But this year, between the holiday rush and the rink, he forgets to send Santa a letter.

At the Christmas Eve game, Brady blows his signature move because a flash of red distracts him. It’s Santa! Right? The hunt is on, as Brady and his teammates from the Icehogs search the arena from rink to rafters so that Brady can give Santa his letter in person. But Santa’s not in the bleachers. Or the snack bar. Or the parking lot . . . or anywhere.

Brady’s holiday is looking like it’s going to be ho-ho-hum. But his mood brightens when he gets home. Maybe it’s not too late for his Christmas wish after all!
