I applaud Mike Brophy for the concept of “My First Goal”. The author interviews 50 NHL players – some prominent, others not – and shares their recollection of their first NHL goal. (In the case of Pete Mahovlich, who admits he cannot remember his first NHL goal, he discusses the famous short-handed goal he scored in 1972 against the Russians.) This book allows the famous (in some cases, the infamous or the slight-exposure-to-fleeting-famous) to reminisce about their early days. It gives us a glimpse at a time when big money and media exposure was not important to a young man who just achieved his lifetime goal of making it to the big-time. It discusses the feeling of skating in front of a massive audience, about sharing the ice and the locker room with players whom he used to watch on television, listen to on the radio, or read about in the newspapers. In short … I loved it. RATING: 5 stars.
