Ice-Hockey Ace 7: Suspended

Lätkä-Lauri ja pelikielto

Ace eats, sleeps and dreams hockey, just like his best friend Vic. They are heading for the NHL, but for now they are in a junior team.

Ace’s dream of becoming a celebrated NHL goalie almost slipped away from him in the very beginning: on ice he was not the whizz-kid he’d always thought he’d be. But then his dad gave him an old catcher glove and suddenly Ace was also an Ace on ice! He was able to block and catch every buck coming his way! He is convinced there is some magic in the glove…

Book 7: Suspended. Goalie pads are good for protection. But Ace is about to find that they do not protect from foolishness! His team has an important tournament ahead of them, and he gets a brand new set of goalie pads. In his elation, Ace is convinced they’d protect him from anything and everything.  And it must be said: the pads are still like new after Ace jumps from great height, unlike his collarbone! It’s a close call – will Ace’s foolishness mean he’ll have to sit out the tournament?
