Overview

Identifying more than two dozen of the brightest young talents in the NHL, this guidebook provides an inside-look at what it took for them climb up the ladder to make their dream reality. Readers will find such stories such as how Matt Carle played a championship tournament with a ruptured spleen during High School, what happened when Jordan Staal was sent on the ice to be the only forward with two defensemen to try to kill off the 5-on-3 power play at the age of nine, how Patrice Bergeron would sit on the ice in the net for hours before miraculously getting up one day and skating perfectly when he was five, and what is was that made Thomas Vanek leave home at 14 years old and move to Canada. Hockey’s Young Guns also provides helpful tips from players and even drills readers can try in order to become the next NHL star. Additionally, a section about who to watch for over the next few years to become the next big thing in the league is included.
