Praise

“Simply said this is one of the best hockey books written since Ken Dryden’s The Game and Dryden and Roy MacGregor’s Home Game.” 
Peterborough Examiner

“A masterful job.”
— Montreal Gazette

“A tense yet thrilling tale.” 
Winnipeg Free Press

The Greatest Game will stand up well as a good treatment of a unique set of circumstances that led to a game for the ages. After reading it, many will want to run out and find a recording of the game. That’s pretty high praise.”

“One of the most important hockey books ever written.”
