Overview

Offering a groundbreaking and intelligent discourse on Canada's national sport, this collection of more than 35 interviews with current and former NHL players, coaches, executives, and famous commentators explains and expounds on the enigmatic relationship hockey has long maintained with Canadians, and its relationship with national identity and culture. Written by celebrated hockey star Paul Henderson—known widely as the scorer of Canada’s “Greatest Goal” in 1972—with a foreword by current Prime Minister Stephen Harper, each interview and account captures the spirit of hockey and its role as a unifying force across 33 million Canadians, and includes the sport’s most-loved icons, greatest plays, notorious brawls, and the infamous poll of great Canadians in history that placed outrageous commentator Don Cherry ahead of Alexander Graham Bell.
