Road to the NHL

Author: Philip Croucher


"Crafted beautifully and researched thoroughly. Croucher has captured a crucial piece of hockey with a master touch. These players owe him a debt of gratitude for telling their stories perfectly."

— Paul Hollingsworth-TSN



"Road to the NHL offers an insightful, inside glimpse into the determination and dedication it takes for a kid from Port Hawkesbury, or St.Stephen, or Charlottetown to make it to the “Bigs.” Croucher brings his knowledge of and passion for hockey to the writing of this book, but he also infuses it with a unique Maritime sensibility. This book should be on every Maritime hockey fan's Christmas list."
