Dixon Woods knows he has no shot at making the Wolfbay Wings Squirt A Team, the best hockey team in the area. His mother is a classic overachiever, though, so that's the team where he must win a place. At tryouts, Dixon sees that this team is not last year's team, the team that won fifty-four games and lost only two: the star players and their coach have abandoned the Wolfbay Wings for another club. With the hardest competition gone, Dixon makes the team. Will Dixon and the others fall flat without the star players, or can they succeed on their own? Woodsie is the first in the series about the Wolfbay Wings.
