As a hockey dad, we weren't surprised at what was on his reading pile:
I'm reading Hockey Dad: True Confessions of a (Crazy) Hockey Parent
by Bob McKenzie right now.
Hockey Dad by Bob McKenzie (Wiley)
I like it because McKenzie talks about his experience raising two competitive hockey players in Ontario, which is something I can relate to since I have an 11-year-old son in hockey right now.
McKenzie also talks about his regrets, like pushing his sons too hard or complaining about other kids on their teams, and these are things I now know to avoid.
I'm half way through the book and I look forward to the stories about elite level tournaments, the OHL draft, and NHL scouting.WATCH this interview with Bob McKenzie on Youtube:
