Review by Cara Gerard

The ponds and ice rinks around Québec City may have turned into mush due to our unusually warm winter, but curling up with a good book about hockey can make up for the weather. The Goal by Andrew Caddell, Dave Stubbs, and Philip Caddell is a charming collection of stories about the game that many Canadians consider their national passion.

A series of personal anecdotes interwoven with stories of years, teams and players gone by, The Goal is for hockey players and fans of all ages. Hockey holds a significant place in the childhood of many Canadians, and this book includes numerous stories from Andrew Caddell’s own days as a young hockey player. The readers will come away with a better understanding of many local hockey traditions, such as the significance of a windbreaker covered in a blinding pattern of champion crests.

One of the authors, Philip Caddell, passed away in 2004, but his storytelling lives on in this book. The funniest anecdote in the book is from his days as an office boy. It involves the Montréal Maroons’ unexpected Stanley Cup win in 1935, an old horse that was likely destined for the glue factory, all of the black hair dye in a several-mile radius and a bet gone terribly, terribly wrong.
