Books Info:

Golden Oldies free pdf "A heartfelt addition to McFarlane s epic canon of hockey writing" From its moving introductory homage to the late Jean Beliveau, to its subtle, remarkable considerations of how the sport was shaped by legends like Newsy Lalonde, Gordie Howe, Dick Irvin Sr., Ted Kennedy, and Hobey Baker, to its poignant lament for the untimely death of American hockey hero Badger Bob Johnson, "Golden Oldies" is the product of a lifetime love of hockey and a career in the game that spans six decades. "Golden Oldies" explores the life of Sprague Cleghorn, a pioneer tough guy who went from the bright lights of Broadway to a boondock in the Ottawa Valley to stardom before and during the first years of the NHL. It follows the trail of Patsy Guzzo and his RCAF mates in 1948, ridiculed at home but rewarded with Olympic gold in Europe. And it chronicles the career-ending injuries to Ace Bailey, the last Leafs NHL scoring leader, the shameful treatment of the Canucks Mike Robitaille, and the horrific and near fatal injury suffered by Buffalo goalie Clint Malarchuk."
