By Kevin Allen and Art Regner / Foreword by Steve Yzerman

 

Contact: Olivia Aguilar, Triumph Books, 312.676.4238, o.aguilar@triumphbooks.com

 

Few teams and even fewer cities have the passionate fan base and winning tradition of the Detroit Red Wings. With 11 Stanley Cups to their credit, the franchise has enjoyed great success and seen some of hockey’s most legendary personalities don the red and white jersey. But there’s more to the Red Wings than throwing octopi on the ice.

 

In Red Wing Nation: Detroit’s Greatest Players Talk About Red Wings Hockey (Triumph Books, November 2015) authors Kevin Allen and Art Regner illuminate over half a century of the Red Wings experience. Find out how all-stars and coaches feel about their most memorable moments and recount the highs and lows of their careers from a unique point of retrospection. With contributions from Ted Lindsay, Bill Gadsby, Reed Larson, Brendan Shanahan and Henrik Zetterberg, this collection covers every generation of Red Wings’ greats. Other highlights include:

 

  • A heartfelt, emotional foreword from Red Wings legend and Stanley Cup Champion Steve Yzerman
  • Career stats and highlights for every contributor
  • What attributes players said made Scotty Bowman stand out above other coaches as the league’s best
  • Behind-the-scenes stories that go behind closed doors for trades and draft day decision

 

Red Wing Nation offers fans of all stripes a chance to better understand how Detroit has come to identify with its beloved Red Wings, explained first hand by the people who made the franchise into the special organization it is today. Whether you’re a lifelong diehard or part of the new generation of hockey fans, you’ll find value in the pages of this enthralling oral history.
