From the Inside Flap

As the NHL's youngest-ever General Manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs at age 30 and with his enviable career in broadcasting and television, Gord Stellick has brought his own inimitable style to the game. But that's not where his story starts or even ends.

Ever since starting out as a part-timer with the Leafs, Gord has had the chance to rub elbows with hockey's heroes, legends, and villains, and has had a chance to be on both sides of the media scrum. This unique perspective shines through in this collection of great stories from all over the hockey world. From the stars, the trades, and the big personalities in the game to the events, highlights, and moments that define hockey, Stellicktricity is a veritable feast of storytelling.

By turns serious and funny, every page of Stellicktricity crackles with the wit and wisdom of a born raconteur—and the hard-headed, real-world insights of a man who's lived and breathed the game of hockey for the better part of his life.

From the Back Cover

Gord Stellick has had a dream career in the hockey world. After spending over fifteen years with the Toronto Maple Leafs and a few more with the New York Rangers, he began what has become a nearly twenty-year (and counting!) career in sports broadcasting. And when you've been a part of the game from as many angles as Gord has, you're bound to collect a tale or two.

Stellicktricity is crammed with the kind of stories that you get only from a true hockey insider. You'll hear all about:

  • What it's like to sit at a table during the NHL draft

  • Why hindsight is 20/20 when trading players

  • How Curtis Joseph joined the Leafs because two guys wanted ice cream

  • The mischievous side of Wendel Clark

  • What it was like to work for the notorious Harold Ballard

  • And all sorts of other cool stuff.

Instead of statistics and controversy, Stellicktricity is a celebration of what makes hockey great, the heart and passion of it, and the fun stuff too. This collection of short, bite-sized vignettes is like popcorn for the hockey fan's soul—you'll only want more.
