Nathan MacKinnon

The NHL's Rising Star

  Author:   Paul Hollingsworth    
  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing

A dominant minor hockey player from Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia, Nathan MacKinnon was ticketed for NHL stardom from an early age. He did not disappoint. MacKinnon would lead his hometown team, major junior’s Halifax Mooseheads, to their first Memorial Cup in 2013, and fulfilled the dream of every young hockey player when he was selected first overall in that summer’s NHL draft. In his first season (2013-2014) for the Colorado Avalanche, MacKinnon met the considerable expectations placed upon him by scoring 63 points and winning the Calder Trophy as the league’s top rookie. While his second season was largely a disappointment before a broken foot ended his season prematurely, MacKinnon’s future is bright.

In this stat-packed biography, TSN correspondent Paul Hollingsworth traces the development of one of the NHL’s most exciting young stars. Starting with MacKinnon’s jaw-dropping minor hockey career and continuing through his NHL career to date and his play as part of Team Canada at world championships, the book includes 40 colour photos, as well as interviews and analysis from well-known hockey commentators. With a foreword from broadcaster Dan Robertson.
