Overview

Saskatchewan is well known for its wheat, big skies, and social innovations. It's also renowned as a hockey hotbed. The NHL would not be the supreme league it is today without the many Saskatchewan pucksters who have skated and scored for all the pro teams. But Saskatchewan hockey is more than a breeding ground for the NHL. Indeed, Saskatchewan has a hockey culture all its own.Here are the true-grit stories of Saskatchewan hockey. Meet Jack McLeod, who won a World Hockey Championship in 1961 with the Trail Smoke Eaters; Fred Saskasmoose, the first Native in the NHL; and Mike Merriman, three-time captain of Canada's deaf team and twice world gold medallist. Some of the community stories include the Lloydminster Blazers winning the province's first Allan Cup in decades; and, of course, Wilcox, home to Notre Dame and its internationally renowned youth hockey program. "Guts and Go" is written for anyone, young or old, who enjoys hockey and hockey stories.
