From the national bestselling author of One Night Only come 39 new stories about what a big-league goal can mean to an NHLer
Including interviews with Billy Smith, Chris Mason, Damian Rhodes, Christian Thomas, and Slap Shot's Dave Hanson.
This follow-up to Reid's national bestseller One Night Only: Conversations with the NHL's One-Game Wonders unearths the blood, sweat, tears, and laughs of the journey to and from a single big-league goal.
If you've ever picked up a hockey stick, chances are you've dreamed of scoring in the National Hockey League. Ken Reid interviews and profiles 39 men who did just that: they bulged the twine in the best hockey league in the world ... but only once. From minor league call-ups to season-long mainstays and even a Hall of Famer, One to Remember answers all the questions ...
What did that one tally mean? Was it enough to satisfy a lifelong ambition, or was it just the smallest taste of success? Is the achievement still cherished years later? Or is it bittersweet, a distant reminder of what could have been?
