Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Road to the NHL offers an insightful, inside glimpse into the determination and dedication it takes for a kid from St. Stephen, or Charlottetown to make it to the “Bigs.” This book should be on every Maritime hockey fan's Christmas list."  —Stephen Kimber, Professor of Journalism, University of King's College in Halifax

"PERFECT . . . "Crafted beautifully and researched thoroughly. Croucher has captured a crucial piece of hockey with a master touch. These players owe him a debt of gratitude for telling their stories perfectly."
 —Paul Hollingsworth, TSN's Atlantic Canada Correspondent
