Prime minister's hockey book to hit store shelves in early November

OTTAWA - Stephen Harper can soon add another line to his resume: published author.

The prime minister's book on the history of hockey is set for a Nov. 5 release.

The book, titled "Great Game: The Forgotten Leafs and the Rise of Professional Hockey," looks at the early years of the game.

It will also feature photographs of famous arenas and the game's earliest star players.

Publisher Simon and Schuster Canada says all Harper's proceeds from the sale of the book will go to the Canadian Forces Personnel and Family Support Services.

Harper has spent years working on the book and is a member of the Society of International Hockey Research.

Quote of the Day

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.
