David is surprised to find that his teammates have named him captain of the Raiders. He accepts the responsibility with enthusiasm, but wonders what it takes to lead a team. He looks to his favourite players who also are captains, Wendel Clark of the Toronto Maple Leafs and Wayne Gretzky of the Los Angeles Kings for inspiration. When these two hockey heroes face each other during the Stanley Cup playoffs, David is able to learn the real meaning of leadership, while watching them tackle their responsibilities to their teams even in the face of defeat. The reader, of course, is treated to a fantastic play by play retelling of those thrilling games! Set against the backdrop of a truly exciting hockey season, this book teaches important leadership skills that can be used both on and off the ice.
