Weekend Hat Trick

Some weekend reads for you...

  1. Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette has a fantastic piece written about his recent visit to the farm of "Mr. Goalie" Glenn Hall.
  2. Scott Stinson of the National Post has an excellent review of Gabe Polsky's new film about Soviet hockey called Red Army. Release dates across America, as well as Vancouver and Toronto (January 30th), were also recently announced, though not theatre names and locations.
  3. A couple of new hockey books to report - I've looked at Chill Factor, which looks at how a minor league hockey team paved the way for NHL success in the college football town of Columbus, and The Val James Story, an autobiography of the first African American player (do note Willie O'Ree and other blacks who preceded James were African Canadian) to ever play in the NHL.

Watch for a couple more book reviews in the coming week at HockeyBookReviews.com.

Read the Dave Stubbs article on Glenn Hall. I chuckled all through it! I loved the line he used to tell about the Hull boys ... "I used to say to Dennis and Bobby when we were in the post-game shower ... HELLO boys! I haven't seen you two this close since the opening face off!"
