Summary "The NHL is a young man's league. How young? Connor McDavid was twenty years old when he won the scoring title and MVP in 2017. Auston Matthews was still a nineteen-year-old rookie when he tied for second in the Rocket Richard Trophy race with forty goals. By the end of the NHL's hundredth season, eight of the top thirty scorers-including four of the top ten-were twenty-three years old or younger. Who are these fresh players? How did they get their starts? What did their journeys look like?.. Each story is different... What the players share is passion and perseverance-almost to the point of obsession. Hockey expert Michael Traikos travelled around the world from Helsinki to Thunder Bay interviewing rising NHL stars, their families, and more than two hundred teammates, coaches, scouts and friends. The result is a first-hand look at how each young star became the player he is today-and what they might become in the future."--Page 4 of cover.
