Hoyt Dale, Parker High's sturdy left defense man, had been after his<br />team mates all season. They were more in the mood to listen to him now,<br />since they had just gone down to a stinging 5 to 2 defeat at the hands<br />of Brinkman Prep.<br /><br />"This makes three straight losses," snapped Hoyt, "and we're going to<br />drop the big game with Hallstead as sure as shooting, unless...!"<br /><br />"Unless what?" demanded Rudie Antrim, who played the other defense<br />position.<br /><br />"Unless you guys learn how to give as well as take!" Hoyt finished,<br />defiantly. "Every team that plays us roughs us into the boards and<br />stick handles us all over the ice. They get away with murder because<br />Coach has never taught you fellows how to take care of yourselves. Why,<br />where I used to play...!"<br />

<DIV>Even before the Edmonton Oilers selected him as the first overall draft pick in 2015, it was clear that Connor McDavid was primed to become hockey's next sensation. His electrifying speed, vision, and overall dominance invited comparisons to the generational talents of Sidney Crosby and Wayne Gretzky, and it's no wonder McDavid was quickly named the youngest captain in NHL history after just his rookie season. Now, the young phenom is ready to bring the glory years back to Oil Country. Providing a rare glimpse into McDavid's life and featuring dozens of full-color photos, <I>Connor McDavid: Hockey's Next Great One</I> is a must-have for Oilers fans and anyone who has marveled at No. 97's unparalleled play.</DIV>

Now that the high board-fence surrounded the large field, and the<br />carefully planned clubhouse stood at the near end, the grounds had a<br />business-like air. Those who knew just how to go about it had seen<br />that the water was just the right depth, and this was now frozen<br />almost solid. As the enclosure was limited in dimensions, it became<br />apparent that half of the ice should be given over to the hockey<br />players. When the game was finished the entire pond could be used by<br />the general public.<br />

Sam Hartley, of all the fellows Reed had so much as a speaking<br />acquaintance with, became the most detested. As the winter tightened<br />its grip and ice and snow sports were more and more indulged in, the<br />taunting Sam seemed to personify the aggravation of the entire school<br />in its relation to the student from the South.<br /><br />"If he doesn't leave me alone pretty soon, something's going to<br />happen!" Reed decided one day after submitting to considerable torment.<br />Among other things he had been caught and forced to dive head first<br />into a five foot drift, being first compelled to climb to the top of a<br />fence post as the diving point. Such stunts as this but increased<br />Reed's hatred for snow and further outraged his estimate of northern<br />fellows.<br />

And so we get the idea of the New Year's resolutions. And Dill<br />Saunders, with his knack for lettering, prints what we've thought up on<br />a big piece of cardboard to which we tie a string like we was going to<br />hang a picture. Then we hike out to Crabby Jacobs' and while the<br />fellows hide down around the bend, me and Pete sneak up to Crabby's<br />door and hang the sign on the door knob and then bang on the door real<br />loud. After that we does a different kind of coasting to get out of<br />sight.<br /><br />It isn't ten seconds later when Crabby comes out on the porch in his<br />shirt sleeves, acting suspicious and excited. He looks all around but<br />he can't see anything so he starts back into the house and then he sees<br />plenty! He lets out a gasp which, on account of the cold air, turns<br />into a puff of white and we can tell from that, he's steaming hot.<br />

The game started again. Encouraged by their success, Belleville<br />again took matters in their own hands and forced the fighting. There<br />were several weak places in the Scranton High line-up. Many who<br />diagnosed the play were of the opinion that the game was already as<br />good as lost.<br /><br />Then came a most violent scrimmage, into which "Just" Smith plunged<br />with the utmost recklessness, as though determined to wipe out all<br />his former mistakes in some brilliant playing. Suddenly the<br />referee's whistle called the game. Something had happened to bring<br />about a stoppage of play. A fellow was down on the ice, with half a<br />dozen others bending over him.<br />

The John Scott story is the ultimate underdog narrative in sports during 2016 when Scott—in the twilight of his career—went from a joke All-Star fan-voted nominee to scoring two goals and winning the All-Star Game’s MVP title. This is his heartwarming story about an average Joe who became a sports superhero overnight.<BR><BR>Known as a willing-and-able fighter and bruiser in the league, John Scott was a surprising and tongue-and-cheek nominee for the 2016 NHL All-Star Game. He’d been in the league for over eight NHL seasons, playing for teams such as the Wild, Blackhawks, Rangers, Sabres, and the Sharks. Scott’s best attribute as an NHL player was dropping his gloves—never the best player, the 260 pounder did become the most feared fighter in the NHL, racking up extensive penalty minutes. In order to prevent him from playing in the game, his current team—the Phoenix Coyotes—traded Scott to the Montreal Canadians, who demoted him to the AHL team in an attempt to disqualify him from playing in the All-Star Game. Fans were outraged and Scott was devastated. He’d been downgraded in his job—forced to relocate while his wife was pregnant with twin girls. But the fans wouldn’t back down and insisted the NHL let Scott play in the game. The league relented, and Scott not only was invited to attend the NHL game in Nashville, but was nominated a team captain. The media and sports fans at large fell in love with the giant six-foot-eight player who by all means, was just a normal guy and no superstar player. In a true Cinderella story, Scott scored two goals and was the All-Star Game’s MVP. This is his personal memoir—detailing his life growing up and how he was able to keep his sense of humor and become the ultimate Cinderella-Story of hockey.

<DIV>In December 1979, a Detroit tradition began when the Red Wings took the ice for the first time at their new riverfront home, Joe Louis Arena. Named after former heavyweight champion boxer Joe Louis, the stadium that became affectionately known as "The Joe" saw the renaissance of the Red Wings franchise, including four Stanley Cup championship seasons and a 25-year run of advancing to the playoffs. <I>The Joe: Memories from the Heart of Hockeytown</I> takes a look back at the storied history of Joe Louis Arena in this, its final year. The arena has witnessed many stories, recounted with admiration in The Joe. Red Wings greats from Gordie Howe to Steve Yzerman to Nicklas Lidstrom skated on The Joe's storied ice, and time-honored rivalries, such as those between the Red Wings and Colorado Avalanche, were played out in dramatic fashion. The stadium has spawned such personalities as Al the Zamboni driver, who twirls octopuses overhead, the Knitting Lady, the Guy in the Orange Hat, and Mo Cheese. The Joe also hosted a number of unforgettable non-hockey events, from Ronald Reagan's nomination at the 1980 Republican convention, to the start of Prince's Purple Rain tour in 1984, to N.W.A.'s controversial concert in 1989, to Bob Seger joining Kid Rock on stage during Super Bowl week in 2006. <I>The Joe</I> offers a comprehensive tribute in words and pictures to hockey's last old-time arena. Learn about the history of the Red Wings and The Joe and the unforgettable games played there, as well as a number of key events in Detroit's history. For anyone who has cheered on the Red Wings over the past three-plus decades, this book is not to be missed.</DIV>
