Bruce Boudreau is living a hockey Cinderella story. After more than three decades in the minor leagues as a player and coach, he was promoted to head coach of the Washington Capitals in 2007. Boudreau revived the Caps, written off as dead, to a division championship and received the Jack Adams award as the National Hockey League’s Coach of the Year in June 2008. His story is an entertaining odyssey of triumph, disappointment, and perseverance, stretching from Toronto to Washington. As a pro rookie, Boudreau had a cameo appearance in Slap Shot with star Paul Newman. Today Boudreau coaches superstar Alexander Ovechkin and a young Washington club poised to become an elite NHL team vying for the Stanley Cup. Boudreau stole the limelight at the 2008 NHL Awards Show with his self-deprecating and folksy manner, which has made him a popular personality at every stop he’s made. Hockey fans know there’s only one Boudreau.

He won two Memorial Cups with the Toronto Marlboros and set a Canadian Hockey League single-season scoring record that stood until Wayne Gretzky broke it.

Review:

"Amusing, engaging, and a great insight..."―http://districtpuckhouse.blogspot.org (districtpuckhouse.blogspot.org 2009-12-07)

“Full of entertaining and engaging stories about a minor leaguer who finally makes it to the NHL.”―www.hockeybookreviews.com, November 2009 (hockeybookreviews.com 2009-12-07)

“One read of the book is straight inspirational. Another is pure fun.”—Post-Star, Glenn Falls, NY (Post-Star 2009-12-07)

“As Don Cherry, who wrote a foreword for this book, said: ‘I know you’ll enjoy it.’”—www.hockeyjournal.com (hockeyjournal.com 2009-12-15)

“A great tale of perseverance and positive thinking. After reading it, you can’t help but root for the ‘Columbo’ of the NHL.”—www.faceoff.com (faceoff.com 2009-12-15)

"Boudreau is a fabulous story teller. . . . More than 60 hours of interviews . . . by veteran Patriot-News hockey writer Tim Leone produced 200 pages of vintage 'Gabby'. . . . Boudreau is honest, colorful, opinionated, grounded, funny, biased, and blunt. And that makes for a more non-traditional read because there are no layers to peel away."—Patriot News (Patriot News 2010-01-19)
