Editorial Reviews


"Defensemen rarely get the accolades they deserve, but Pronovost’s Hall of Fame career as a rock solid blueliner spanned 19 seasons, mostly in the Original Six era, for the Red Wings dynasty of the ’50s and the last Maple Leafs team to win the Cup, those geezers of 1967. He tells his story here, illustrated by glorious vintage black and white photos, and shares tales of Gordie Howe, Ted Lindsay, Johnny Bower and more, especially his friendship with the difficult Terry Sawchuk. He also goes into his later scouting career where he was instrumental in the Devils drafting Marty Brodeur. The publisher created two covers, a young Pronovost wearing a Wings jersey for the US market and an older Marcel in Leafs jersey for Canada. Both look sharp."—Stu Hackel, Sports Illustrated online

"A fantastic new release…This is a solid book and a great introduction to a Hockey Hall of Famer." —
