He has played in international hockey tournaments in Santa Rosa, California, and Whistler, BC. Among his 18 books, 11 are about hockey, including eight Hockey the NHL Way instructional books (co-written with coach Paul Carson), a history of the Vancouver Canucks, and biographies of Dominik Hasek and Mario Lemieux. He lives in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Most recently, he chaired the Hockey Canada Coaching Committee and served as the Provincial Coaching Coordinator for the British Columbia Amateur Hockey Association.
