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

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.

— Chicago Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz on signing Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane to contract extensions
