“We were all proud to be Kelly’s teammates, and I’m sure he will give all you fans a wonderful insight into hockey and the lessons he learned in his everyday life.” (Wayne Gretzky, from the foreword)
“Kelly and I have worked together for two decades on Hockey Night in Canada. . . In team sports and with our cast and crew, a life in performance, Kelly knew he was playing solo. He showed others how it’s done.” (Ron MacLean)
“The thing that made Kelly special was that although he was a goalie, he was a great leader on the team. He could easily have been captain. Like most great leaders, he was positive, but if he had something to say to someone, he would say it.” (Luc Robitaille)
“Armed with years of perspective after retiring, Hrudey has a lot to say in his new memoir . . . [and] addresses the most epic elements of his career with brutal honesty and real humility.” (The Hockey News)
