Published Nov 2022

<strong>A Stanley Cup champion and modern legend of the game, in his own words</strong><br /><br />Marián Hossa’s life is a lesson in the value of determination and perseverance. Born into a hockey family that included his father, a former player and coach of the Slovakian national team, Marián and his brother, Marcel, quickly fell in love with the sport. Before long, they began to display the level of skill that could lead to a professional career. But the odds of reaching the NHL from Tren#&269;ín, a town of 50,000 people nestled among the mountains of Slovakia, remained long.<br /><br />Determined to follow their dreams, the Hossas persevered and were each eventually drafted in the first round. After some outstanding years in Ottawa and Atlanta, Marián moved on to Pittsburgh in 2008, where he helped lead the Penguins to the Stanley Cup Final against Detroit, a series his team lost.<br /><br />Prioritizing winning over dollars, Hossa signed with the Red Wings the following season, where he again reached the Final only to find heartbreak again, improbably against the team he had just left, the Penguins. It seemed that perhaps he would never raise Lord Stanley’s Cup above his head.<br /><br />But Hossa persevered, refusing to give in. In 2009, he signed with the Chicago Blackhawks, and played a key role in the team’s dynastic run the following decade, winning championships in 2010, 2013, and 2015. Then, yet another obstacle appeared in his path: an unusual and debilitating skin condition that compelled him to retire years before he’d planned. <br />#&8203;<br />In this inspiring and entertaining autobiography, Hossa brings readers inside the dressing room, onto the celebratory team plane, and alongside one of hockey’s greatest stars as he makes the biggest decisions of his career.<br /><br /><strong>Also featuring photos from Hossa#&39;s personal collection, this is an essential read for all hockey fans.</strong>

Published Nov 2022

In the run-up to the NHL Entry Draft in 1992, the Buffalo Sabres interviewed Matthew Barnaby. John Muckler, Buffalo#&39;s coach, asked him, &quot;What happens at 8:05 on Saturday night in Detroit when Bob Probert asks you to fight?” When the teenager responded, “That’s easy. At 8:03, I’d have already asked Probert to fight,” they knew they had to draft him. <br /><br />Through 14 NHL seasons after that exchange, Barnaby never stopped fighting. <br /><br />In <em>Unfiltered</em>, the former right wing reflects on the adventures of a high-profile life and the determination that got him there, from getting drafted last in juniors to carving out a role for himself on each new NHL team, to discovering new joys and passions in retirement. <br /><br />Barnaby also opens up about the memorable hijinks, the larger-than-life hockey characters, and the very real challenges and risks that come with the sport#&39;s physicality. <br /><br /><strong>Both hilarious and heartrending, this is an unvarnished story of battles fought and lessons learned.</strong>

<strong>Encompassing sports, civics, and regional identity, this is a multifaceted narrative of launching a franchise from the ground up. </strong><br /><br />In 2021, Seattle released the Kraken. <br /><br />Evoking the aquatic mystique of Puget Sound while epitomizing colorful innovation, the Seattle Kraken, the National Hockey League#&39;s newest expansion franchise, entered its inaugural season backed by league-wide fanfare and with an eye toward the future of both the team and its city. <br /><br />In true Seattle fashion, they would play their games on ice from recycled rainwater in front of sold-out crowds at the privately funded, all-electric, Amazon-sponsored Climate Pledge Arena. If an organic union of sports and civic identity was ever possible, this would seem to be it. <br /><br />How did it go so right? What made the Emerald City the perfect setting for a new hockey franchise just years after it had failed to retain the NBA#&39;s SuperSonics? And could the same forces that propelled the Kraken into existence be redeployed to attract a basketball team once again? <br /><br /><em>Rising From the Deep</em> traces the dynamic origins of the NHL#&39;s newest team, from the history of Seattle hockey in the early 20th century, to the winter sports void left by the bitter departure of the Sonics, to the the development of a team identity that captured the imagination of hockey fans everywhere. <br /><br /><strong><em>Seattle Times</em> investigative reporter Geoff Baker takes readers behind the scenes and back to the start with power brokers, players, and fans in this fascinating, hard-fought saga.</strong>

In Philadelphia Flyers orange and black, Chris Therien cut an imposing figure on the ice, a stalwart physical presence for over a decade in the NHL.

Therien takes readers from the blue line to the broadcast booth, sharing untold stories from life in pro hockey while laying bare his private struggle with addiction, including his ultimate low in 2006 after the death of his sister. <br /><br /><em>Road to Redemption</em> also details Therien#&39;s deep bond with the city of Philadelphia and his new path helping others find recovery from drug or alcohol abuse. <br /><br /><strong>Hockey fans will not want to miss this heartfelt and vulnerable tale.</strong>

Published Sep 2022

<strong>A multidimensional biography of one of Philadelphia#&39;s ultimate power brokers.</strong><p>Most sports team owners make their money elsewhere and purchase a team as an extravagant hobby—but that is not the story of Ed Snider. One of the few owners in history to get control of a franchise by mortgaging nearly everything to his name, the longtime Philadelphia Flyers chairman would go on to form the billion-dollar empire of Comcast-Spectacor and cement his standing as one of the most influential businessmen in the city’s history. </p><p>Snider was ambitious and entrepreneurial, though extraordinarily demanding of those who worked for him. He was affectionate with his loved ones, yet often showed a surprising lack of emotional intelligence. His staunch capitalist beliefs contrasted his progressive-minded views on the business of hockey and in sharing his wealth with those in need. </p><p><i>The Last Sports Mogul </i>embraces all sides of Snider to form a complex portrait of the unparalleled figure once named Philadelphia’s greatest mover and shaker of the millennium. </p><strong>Thoroughly researched and reported, this is a fascinating business story encompassing humble beginnings, unprecedented success, and the values one chooses at the end of the day.</strong>
