Finding a good hockey book in the book realm is like trying to find an ice rink in Phoenix. Your search will be short and yield little results. This book, however, is that diamond in the rough. I came across Derek Boogaard's story while I was reading an anthology of Best American Sports Writing for a creative nonfiction workshop in college and was both intrigued and saddened. This book expands on John Branch's prior examination of Boogaard's life and tragic death as a result of an accidental drug overdose, brought on by chronic traumatic encephalopathy, more commonly known as CTE. Branch's investigative writing might make you think twice about cheering for the enforcers that go out and fight night in and night out at the professional level. I highly recommend this book for not only hockey fans, but for any person who can appreciate an in-depth, journalistic examination of a problem plaguing sports today.
