Ken Dryden was a legendary goalie for the Montreal Canadiens. He has written five books and served as a Liberal MP for seven years.
As a goalie for the Canadiens in the 1970s, Ken Dryden won the Stanley Cup five times, the Vezina Trophy (for best netminder) five times, and made the NHL all-star team five times.
Ken Dryden is considered one of the best goalies to ever play the game. His final memorable season with the Habs is chronicled in his memoir, The Game.
Now, 28 years later, The Game is considered one of the finest sports books ever written.
