Additional Notes

From The Publisher*From the bestselling author and Hall of Famer Ken Dryden, this is the story of NHLer Steve Montador-who was diagnosed with CTE after his death in 2015-the remarkable evolution of hockey itself, and a passionate prescriptive to counter its greatest risk in the future: head injuries.
 
Ken Dryden's The Game is acknowledged as the best book about hockey, and one of the best books about sports ever written.  Then came Home Game (with Roy MacGregor), also a major TV-series, in which he explored hockey's significance and what it means to Canada and Canadians. Now, in his most powerful and important book yet, Game Change, Ken Dryden tells the riveting story of one player's life, examines the intersection between science and sport, and expertly documents the progression of the game of hockey-where it began, how it got to where it is, where it can go from here and, just as exciting to play and watch, how it can get there.
Biographical NoteKen Dryden was a goalie for the Montreal Canadiens during the 1970s during which time the team won six Stanley Cups. He was also a member of Team Canada in 1972. He is a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame and the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame. He is a former member of parliament and cabinet minister, and is the author of five books, including The Game and Home Game (with Roy MacGregor). He and his wife, Lynda, live in Toronto and have two children. The author lives in Toronto, ON.
