Overview

From the youngest general manager in NHL history to veteran on-air hockey analyst Gord Stellick has seen it all, and now tells it all. Few have been given the opportunity to be on both sides of the hockey rink, managing the Leafs and the Rangers, and then regaling his legion of TV and radio fans with the colourful insider knowledge he's amassed about blockbuster trades, NHL stars, and the talent that got away. But Gord Stellick has. In an almost forty-year career, he's one of the best known hockey personalities around. Not only is the book crammed with details on hockey greats like Gretzky, Orr, Sakic, and Crosby, his NHL bosses (like Harold Ballard and Punch Imlach), but it also contains an inimitable look at Stellick's colleagues in the media. Destined to become a favourite of hockey fans everywhere, Stellicktricity not only covers every corner of the game of hockey but offers the author's unique view of other sports across North America.

Meet the Author

Gord Stellick began working for the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1975 and became the club’s General Manager in 1988. In the summer of 1989, he resigned from the Leafs and joined the New York Rangers as assistant GM. Stellick then moved from management to media, working as the Leafs’ colour analyst on their radio broadcasts. In 1993, Stellick joined forces with Cox to co-host an afternoon talk show on the FAN590 all-sports radio station in Toronto. Stellick currently co-hosts the FAN590’s daily morning show, and was previously host of The Big Show, also on FAN590. Appearing regularly as an NHL analyst for Rogers SportsNet TV, and co-hosting Inside the AHL weekly on Rogers SportsNet, Stellick remains one of the most popular sports media figures in Toronto and across the country.
