View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Hockey coaches questioned Marty McSorley’s speed and skill at every level, but the unlikely, undrafted underdog made the NHL, becoming one of the most effective team players in the history of the league. In this riveting book, McSorley takes readers behind the scenes of his remarkable life for the first time, from a rough and tumble childhood growing up on a farm with nine brothers and sisters, to surprising and often hilarious locker room anecdotes. He shares inside stories of Stanley Cup victories with the Oilers dynasty, the trade that moved Gretzky to Los Angeles, a notorious court case in Vancouver where he faced assault charges for an incident on the ice, negotiations on the NHL’s collective bargaining agreement, and what it was like to play with the greats—Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, Mark Messier, Kelly Hrudey and many more. Hellbent is fast-paced, controversial, and thoroughly entertaining memoir that every fan of hockey will enjoy.
