Message From The Author

Hello hockey friends!

Well, its been quite a journey. For 25 years our family lived hockey to the fullest. On our journey from small town to Pro, we climbed just about every rung on the hockey ladder imaginable. Like you, we experienced all of the high’s and lows, faced the challenge’s, learned the lessons, made the decisions. And now, after five years of interviews, research, and writing, its all here – the answers to your questions, help with decisions and direction – the complete guide to life in hockey. I hope you like it! This book really can be your friend through life in hockey.
