Synopsis: An uncensored examination of hockey's truly unique culture, "So You Want Your Kid to Play Pro Hockey" will guide you along the oft-rocky path from the culmination of a childhood dream to its seemingly disappointing but strangely fulfilling end.

About the Author: Jamie McKinven was born in Kingston, Ontario, the hometown of one of hockey’s most colourful personalities and controversial advocates in Don Cherry. He grew up idolizing the high-octane players of the free-wheeling eighties only to break into hockey’s higher levels during the tight-checking late nineties and 2000s. McKinven scratched and clawed, sacrificed and laid it all on the line only to fall short of playing in the NHL and experiencing his ultimate dream. However, along the way while riding the buses and living paycheque to paycheque, he discovered a great deal about life, love and the value of following through on a dream. Jamie McKinven was a star as well as a healthy scratch, won a championship and finished dead last, scored an overtime winner and cost his team a game, and experienced a lifetime of memories that spanned two continents, seven countries and eight leagues. This is the first book written by the 30-year-old McKinven who has returned to Kingston where he coaches his former Jr. “A” team, the Kingston Voyageurs of the OJHL and lives with his fiancé Jasmine and daughter Cleo.
