Memoir of a Hockey Nobody is the unlikely true story of an average Canadian kid who grew up playing street hockey. Although he didn’t learn how to skate until his late teens, he took a shot at entering the world of professional ice hockey with, shall we say, haphazard results.
This is an “against all odds” tale of one man’s journey from Vancouver, to all over Western Canada, California, The Yukon, and Alaska. Seemingly blocked at every turn, from managers who believed that someone who came from such humble beginnings couldn’t be any good, to coaches who would rather see big names with bigger reputations. It’s a story of tragedy, triumph and determination. A roller coaster ride with hilarious anecdotes of all the characters he met along the way.
This is a tale for those who dare to live their dream!
Memoir of a Hockey Nobody is a funny, witty and entirely authentic read!
This is a great story of perseverance and passion for the game. I was reminded of the classic, Rudy, while reading along. You’ll find similarities in integrity and passion between Rudy and the author Jerry Hack.
Memoirs of a Hockey Nobody is laugh-out-loud funny and a book that players and fans will enjoy! If you love an entertaining page-turner, then I highly recommend this book!
Jerry Hack will be awarding a $20 Amazon/B&N Gift Card to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour!
About the Author
Author bio: I was born and raised in Burnaby, British Columbia. My sisters and I were raised by hard-working blue collar parents. We were and are a tight knit family. I grew up loving sports but hockey most of all.
In fact, it was my passion. I read about it, watched it and played it. I was an average student and a good athlete. I could play most sports without looking out of place. But I was born to be a goalie.
I graduated from high school in 1979 and a year later began my journey playing ice hockey. 40 years later, I am happily married with a 12 year old daughter and loving life more than ever.
