Fire on Ice

Why Saskatchawan Rules the NHL

  Author:   Darrell Davis, Jordan Eberle,  
  Publisher:  MacIntyre Purcell Publishing Inc.

From current stars Jordan Eberle, Ryan Getzlaf, Jarret Stoll, and Brooks Laich to Hall of Famers and legends like Gordie Howe, Bryan Trottier, Elmer Lach, and Glenn Hall, this collection tells the personal histories of the greatest Saskatchewan hockey players. Saskatchewan produces more NHL hockey players per capita than any other place in the world, and Fire on Ice is the story of kids literally growing up skating on frozen sloughs, backyard rinks, and in small-town arenas. They turn the hard-working ethic of their backgrounds into the characteristics that make for great NHL players. Including 40 black-and-white photos, this historical look at hockey in Saskatchewan explains the reason why the province produces so much talent.
