Description
Professional hockey enforcers - popularly known as "goons" - finally get their due in this rollicking look at the players who have perfected the art of making mayhem. Whether they are called upon to duke it out with a fellow troublemaker or intimidate an opponent's top scorer, these are the men who get the crowds to their feet, the sports radio shows buzzing, and the TV Audience spilling their beers in excitement.Old timers like Joe Hall and Red Horner are profiled here, along with legendary heavy hitters Tiger Williams, Stu Grimson, and Bob Probert, fan favorites Tie Domi and Georges Laroque, and contemporary hockey stars Arron Asham and Brian McGrattan. The book also delves into the intense debate over the issue of violence on the ice as well as the personal and professional dramas of the NHL's bad boys: the suspensions, the concussions, and the constant controversy of their role in the game.
