INSTANT NATIONAL BESTSELLER From the distinct and vibrant voice behind Hockey Night in Canada Punjabi comes the story of pursuing a dream and defying the odds, reminding us all of hockey's power to unite. BoninoBoninoBonino! Ask a hockey fan if they have heard the wonderfully electric call of Nick Bonino's overtime-winning goal from the 2016 Stanley Cup Final and they will almost surely answer with a resounding yes! That's because video clips of the Hockey Night in Punjabi broadcast immediately went viral, amplifying the profile of Harnarayan Singh, the voice behind the call. Growing up in small-town Alberta, Harnarayan was like many other kids who dreamed about a life within the sanctum of the game they idolized. There was only one small difference--he didn't look like any of the other kids. And when he sat down on Saturday nights to tune in to Hockey Night in Canada with the rest of the nation, he couldn't ignore the fact that the broadcasters or analysts didn't look like him either. Undeterred, Harnarayan worked his way from calling imaginary hockey games with his plastic toy microphone as a child, to funding secret flights from Calgary to Toronto every weekend in the early days of Hockey Night in Punjabi, to making history as the first Sikh to broadcast an NHL game in English. Full of heart, humour, and bursting with personality (and maybe a few family prayers for Wayne Gretzky), One Game at a Time is the incredible and inspiring story of how Harnarayan Singh broke through the longstanding barriers and biases of the sport he loves. But more than that, Harnarayan blends his unabashed love of hockey with a refreshing and necessary positive message about what it means to be a Canadian in the world, making him one of the most influential ambassadors of the game today.

Winning is about more than putting the puck in the net. A team needs to work hard every day, both on and off the ice, to create the strength and determination required to make a run at victory. It also takes a community of people dedicated to helping in any way they can. The Soo Greyhounds have become one of the most dynamic, successful, and exciting teams playing hockey in North America, but they didn't get there alone. In Sault Ste. Marie, it takes a village to raise a hockey team. Player profiles include some of the Greyhounds' alumni, such as Wayne Gretzky, Ron Francis, Joe Thornton, Paul Coffey, Adam Foote, John Vanbiesbrouck and Craig Hartsburg as they pursued their hockey and other dreams. Hound Town looks at the relationship between a team and its community as the franchise heads into its forty-fifth season. It also, demystifies the operations of a hockey franchise in the OHL by providing accurate information to assist players, parents, advisors, and fans. Through player profiles, highlights and struggles from each season, and a look behind the scenes at the amazing people who provide support, it shows that the Soo Greyhounds are an integral part of Sault Ste. Marie, and truly the community's team. From the team's first season in 1972 to the shifting trends in today's game, the book provides an insider's perspective on a seminal OHL hockey club, and what it takes to make Sault Ste. Marie one of the best hockey towns anywhere.

What is that some “thing” a player possesses that creates a champion, or, conversely, a bust? That is the question my University of Alberta colleagues, Dr. John G.H. Dunn & Nick L. Holt, and I set off to explore when we pursued the following research title: “Exploring the ‘Intangible Player Characteristics’ that Junior Hockey Scouts Consider when Evaluating Draft-Eligible Prospects." The eventual results would find their way into the 2019 edition of The Sport Psychologist (volume 33, issue 4), under the title “Talent Identification in Youth Ice Hockey: Exploring ‘Intangible’ Player Characteristics.” As such, the foundation of information presented herein relies heavily upon the UofA research as well as other empirical studies pertaining to talent identification (TiD). The ultimate decision to write this book was motivated by a desire to share the results minus any of the literary restrictions that are required for research and/or publication within an academic journal. In other words, presenting the information in a less formal writing style with the literary freedom to share my own opinion was appealing. I also felt that a simplified version might help solidify some components of the results. The goal from the outset was to provide useful information for young athletes from any sport that hope to be discovered, selected, drafted, or signed. Additionally, parents of young athletes might benefit from information about the scouting process, and the considerations TiD experts use to make final decisions. However, while the supporting evidence was drawn from other team and individual sport research, my own study was conducted specifically within the sport of hockey.
