Glenn Hall: The Man They Call Mr. Goalie
In this engaging biography, hockey coach and writer Tom Adrahtas traces Mr. Goalie's rise to stardom and firmly establishes his claim to the title of number one all-time goaltender. From the goaltender's legendary pre-game ritual through the evolution of Hall's trademark butterfly style and the unparalleled consistency of his play, this is a history of the heady days of early hockey. Through interviews with Mr. Goalie, Hall's family, and such noteworthy team-mates as Stan Mikita, Doug Harvey, Ted Lindsay, Bobby Hull and many more, Adrahtas brings to life hockey in the golden era and reminds us that Glenn Hall was number one both on the ice and off.
