Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for any hockey fan Just received my copy and love the pictures and stories Bobby makes available. His love for the sport is still evident but also those around the sport, coaches, GMs, team mates and his own family, he writes about his pride and love. Many of his photos were wonderful to see, along with his stories, you won’t be disappointed.
