Book Description

Oct. 17 2008

Every day in hockey is great; only one day is the greatest.

If you’re a hockey player or fan, you know the significance of winning the Stanley Cup or an Olympic gold medal. You know that almost every kid dreams of one day playing for his or her country, or of being drafted by an NHL team. That all-important first big game and first goal are magical and compelling milestones. The NHL dream, the national team dream, the dream of game-seven drama or gold-medal glory define the game and represent the climactic moments of years of dedication.

But the dreams we imagine are not necessarily the same as those of the men and women we revere. Veteran journalist and hockey analyst Scott Morrison has interviewed 50 great hockey people?players and coaches. Managers, and even a decorated general in Canada’s military?and discovered that what a player considers his or her greatest single day in hockey is often not at all what we think that greatest day would be.

Gretzky surpassing Howe? Hasek winning Olympic gold? Crosby winning the Hart and Art Ross Trophies? Readers are in for a big surprise!

The engaging and honest stories in Hockey Night in Canada: My Greatest Day reveal a deeply personal love for the game that will entertain us, move us, and often surprise up. Familiar names? Yes. Common themes? Yes. Expected answers? No.

Featuring full-colour photographs and informative sidebars, Hockey Night in Canada: My Greatest Day is a wonderful trip down memory lane?a must-read for hockey fans everywhere.
