Stan Mikita was not your average hockey player. For one thing, he born in the Slovak Republic and starred in the NFL during a period when European players were rare. For another, this aggressive center was a noted bad boy who one day resolved to play clean and became famous for doing so. Mikita played his entire career (1956-1980) with the Chicago Blackhawks, racking up numerous awards and starring on one Stanley Cup winning team. Like its author, this illustrated autobiography pleases, refreshes, and confounds expectations.
