AuthorHouse, 2000 - Biography & Autobiography - 208 pages

Tales From The Rink is a collection of mini-autobiographies of ex-NHL players. From their childhood days on the frozen pond, through their professional careers, and into their retirement from the game, you will read about their lives in their own words.

Tales from The Rink contains the stories of players involved in the game from the 1940's through the 1990's - players like Bill Barber, Red Berenson, Johnny Wilson, Bill Gadsby and Johnny Ogrodnick to name a few.

You go beyond just what happened to them on the ice and into their personal lives, learning what people and events helped to boost their careers and how their playing days came to an end.

From Jimmy Peters Sr. skating with the Montreal Canadiens the same day he returned from his tour of duty in WWII, to Nick Libett's post-career battle with non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, to Pat Peake's career ending ankle injury, you will read about these players lives both on and off the ice.

These are true stories of the players that made the game great.
