A revealing look at the good, the bad, and the ugly of minor hockey culture Known as TSN's "Hockey Insider," Canada's Bob McKenzie is synonymous with the sport and one of its most respected analysts. In Hockey Dad, McKenzie describes firsthand the joys and heartbreak of raising two sons, with entirely diverging athletic futures. He details their separate paths, describing Michael, a 22-year-old playing NCAA hockey on scholarship, and Shawn, now 19, whose competitive minor hockey life was cut short at age 14 because of multiple concussions. Their deeply personal stories, and the trials and tribulations of a father creating futures for them, offer readers a compelling look into the world and culture of minor hockey.

Great Book. Bob doesn't mind revealing his mistakes and weaknesses.

A great book for all especially for parents. I read it as one that is not a parent or involved in minor league hockey however I very much enjoyed it as well. Bob McKenzie is a very talented person with great work thus everything he produces carries the same quality. There are sad, funny, crazy and sometimes shocking stories. Worth taking a read!
