Hockey Dad: True Confessions of a (Crazy?) Hockey Parent

By Bob McKenzie, TSN’s “Hockey Insider”

0470159391

Hockey Dad is a revealing look at the good, the bad and the ugly of minor hockey culture. Bob McKenzie, a hockey broadcaster and hockey dad, candidly examines the minor hockey way of life, reflecting on the game, and debating numerous hockey issues.

McKenzie has insight into the minor hockey world that can only come from having lived through the highs and the lows of being the father of two boys who grew up in an environment where minor hockey was their epicenter. His personal stories convey the pride and joy of having one son playing NCAA hockey on scholarship in the U.S., the trial and tribulations of another son giving his hockey dreams up at age 14 because of concussions.

From personal anecdotes, to praise and criticism for the system, this book is an insightful, irreverent, and moving look at a slice of hockey culture that is not so much a recreation as it is a way of life.

About the author:

McKenzie has been covering hockey for more than 30 years and is one of the most respected analysts in the business. In 2008, he was selected by The Hockey News as one of hockey’s 100 most powerful and influential people. He is the father of two hockey-playing sons.

More praise for Hockey Dad:

“And people think I’m crazy? This guy is the definition of crazy.”-          John Tortorella, Head Coach, New York Rangers

“A must-read for all parents of athletes, not just hockey parents.” –          Brian Burke, Toronto Maple Leafs’ President and General Manager

“As a fan of the game, and as a parent, you will get an inside view of minor hockey, junior hockey, college hockey and, of course, the professional game. Bob has put into words the good times and the tough times for a parent raising two young hockey players. This is one hockey book you shouldn’t miss. You will learn a lot and it is a good, fun read.”-          Wayne Gretzky
