9780143181026: Journeyman: The Many Triumphs (and Even More Numerous Defeats) of a Guy Who's Seen Just about Everything in the Game of Hockey

Anyone who s gotten to the NHL the hard way has a story to tell. No one understands the game better than the guys on the fourth line who fight for their jobs every night. They know all too well what it s like to watch from the press box or, worse, to be sent to the minors or traded. Sean Pronger has seen it all. He s played for legendary coaches such as Pat Burns and gone head to head with Doug Gilmour and Steve Yzerman in the faceoff circle. He was on the ice for perhaps the most notoriously violent attack in recent hockey history. While playing in the minors in Winnipeg, he guzzled beer in an ice-fishing hut with grizzled veterans like John MacLean, and he caused international incidents with Doug Weight while playing in Europe. But none of that went to his head.

Full of hilarious stories and self-deprecating jokes, "Journeyman "is in the end a story not only about achieving a dream, but about realizing you ve achieved it. "

And they may end up drinking champagne--but only because their little brother has won the Stanley Cup. Anyone who's gotten to the NHL the hard way has a story to tell. No one understands the game better than the guys on the fourth line who fight for their jobs every night. They know all too we...
