Journey back to 1976 and meet Michael, who wants to be just like his hero, Darryl Sittler, captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs and a Hall of Fame inductee. From his living room perch in front of the television, Michael watches Hockey Night in Canada and dreams of playing for the Leafs. We follow him out to the ice rink to play hockey with his friends, from store to store in search of a Leafs sweater, and, finally, to the stands at a Leafs game to watch Sittler's extraordinary 10-point game. In the end, Michael learns that there is much more to the love of hockey than just having the sweater of your favourite player."This is a heartwarming, truly Canadian story about a loveable young boy, his passion for the game of hockey and his fondness for his hockey hero." -Regina Leader Post
