From TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie comes a new collection of hockey stories about the everyday heroes from across the game who are defying the odds and championing the next generation of hockey—on and off the ice. In this uplifting and entertaining volume of stories, Canadian broadcasters Bob McKenzie and Jim Lang bring together hockey players, coaches, and refs, as well as those behind the bench—the parents, scouts, analysts, and agents—to tell us, in their own voices, why they love the game and how they’re shaping its future. Meet Dallas Stars’ winger Andrew Cogliano, who captivated the hockey world by playing 830 consecutive games, despite various injuries, and hear how hockey and his parents instilled in him the strong work ethic that made his streak possible. Learn about how Jeremy Rupke found his passion and created the popular website, How To Hockey, to help young hockey hopefuls who might not have money for professional lessons develop their on-ice skills and give them the confidence to achieve their dreams off the ice. Read about players like Jack Jablonski, who didn’t let a life-changing spinal cord injury at age sixteen stop him from being a part of the game, and is now using his experience to raise awareness and funds for spinal cord injury research. From LGBTQ players like Jessica Platt who are breaking down barriers to the women such as Danièle Sauvageau who are breaking glass ceilings as coaches, refs, agents, and analysts, these are the everyday heroes who are using hockey to inspire change. Featuring incredible stories of comebacks, milestones, and friendship, Everyday Hockey Heroes, Volume II highlights the very best of hockey: the power it has to unite us to be the best we can be—for ourselves and for others.

For much of the nineteenth century European militarists had channeled their spirit and energy into sports in hopes of creating a training ground for warriors. This new concept and logic fed upon the ideas of racial purity and warrior cults. It was a belief system well in keeping with the imperialism of the times. In the 1890s this form of ideology and practice reached new levels as athletes began to compete under the banners of nations. Following WWI, and as a result of the worldwide growth and popularity of the Olympics, the game of ice hockey took on a more complex form as teams representing countries began to compete in international play. Cultural differences, political ideologies, and blind nationalism supplanted sportsmanship. Pride and emotion replaced reason. From North America to Nazi Germany, and on to the gates of Moscow, what were designed to be hockey games of goodwill became battles. The Great War was over; the longest undeclared war of nations was about to begin. The follow-up to the best selling book 'Black Ice: The Lost History of the Colored Hockey League of the Maritimes, 1895-1925'

Rory might have chalked it all up to one of those days, except that one day led to another just like the one before. It all started with the neighbor's dog soiling his yard and doing so the day of his recreational league hockey championship. While this was something most goalies would likely consider a bad omen, one thing Rory had going in his favor was that he didn't believe in bad luck. Nonetheless, his knee jerk reaction to this simple crisis starts a chain reaction of personal disasters touching every aspect of his life from the business he owns to his marriage. Before all is done, he'll find himself questioning his priorities, motivations and even his beliefs. This is the often hilarious, sometimes touching, always ringing true to life tale of Rory's misadventures in life, death and hockey . . . Scott Noble, acclaimed author of Hockey for Weekend Warriors, makes his fiction debut with Speaking of Life, Death, and Hockey. His long anticipated novel is bursting at the seams with humor as his readers might expect. They might expect the action, but the simple universal truths that lie at the heart of this story are what make it simply a truly surprising and fulfilling read.
