Probert's memoirs to be published
A book about the life of long-time NHL tough guy Bob Probert that was being written when he died last month will still be published.

Probert, who was writing a book about his career with the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks titled, "Tough Guy," still will be released Oct. 26. The book also tells the story of Probert's life away from the ice, including his struggles with alcohol.

Probert was working on the book with Kristie McLellan Day before his tragic heart attack July 5.

"He was really excited and happy about the opportunity to tell it like it really was -- behind the headlines," Probert's widow, Dani Probert, said in a statement released by publisher HarperCollinsCanada. "After much deliberation, my family and I have decided to fulfill Bob's dream and publish the book."
Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
