about

Combining rich period detail, gripping narrative and thrilling hockey action, Putting a Roof on Winter brilliantly explores the changing identity of a game that has become, for those who love it, the meaning of life in winter.

Michael McKinley, a life-long hockey fanatic, alternatively followed the fortunes of the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Montreal Canadiens until 1970, when the NHL gave him local heroes by granting a franchise to the Vancouver Canucks. He is a screenwriter and the author of Hockey Hall of Fame Legends and Putting a Roof on Winter.
