Chapter One
Johnny Maverick thought he saw something move inside his hockey bag. Ÿings in hockey bags should not move, he told himself. Johnny was in the dressing room with the rest of the players on the Howling Timberwolves hockey team. It was the first practice of the year. His hockey bag was open on the floor in front of him. He was ready to put on his equipment for the practice. But something in the bag had moved. He leaned forward to look inside the bag. He pulled out a hockey glove. Something fell from the inside of the glove. It landed in the bag and disappeared.

“I hope I’m wrong,” he said to himself. “I hope I didn’t just see a—” “Johnny!” Coach Smith said to him. “Are you listening?” “Um, no,” Johnny said. He was worried about his hockey bag. He looked in it again. “Please,” Coach Smith said, “look at me when I talk.” Johnny looked up. Everyone on the team was staring at him. Twelve players. All of them lived in or near a town called Howling. It was a small town. Ÿere were not a lot of hockey players for this team. Ÿey needed everybody they could get. “Coach,” Johnny said. “My mom made me keep my hockey equipment in the storage shed all summer. She thinks hockey equipment smells bad.” “She’s right,” Coach Smith said. “Ÿat means I might have a problem,” Johnny said. He looked back into the bag. He hoped the thing in the bag wasn’t what he thought it was.
