~~Into the Empty Net was the much-anticipated sequel to the best-selling Last Minute of Play. Its 21 chapters takes the reader through the lives of those who played in the NHL as our hockey heroes, and illuminates their varying views of the game.
Rollicking with humour, sometimes poignant and sad in its down-times, always brutally honest and occasionally shocking in the re-telling of their stories, Into the Empty Net originally came out in October of ’94, exactly a year after Last Minute of Play.
From the youth and power of Gilbert Perreault, to his boyhood idol the regal and much decorated Jean Beliveau, from the brash, larger-than-life Derek Sanderson, to the comedic talents of Dennis Hull, to the tragedy that was Tim Horton, Into the Empty Net completes one of the most engaging looks into our storied game as it has never been scrutinized before.
The author captures the known names in hockey relating their stories in a timeless setting, where the reader becomes one of those sitting in on the telling. And the critics agreed.
