Few people have had a better front-row seat to hockey history than Kelly Hrudey. And in Calling the Shots, he delivers the same insider view as he takes us on a roller-coaster ride through the NHL over the last thirty years, alongside his Hall of Fame teammates Mike Bossy, Denis Potvin, Jari Kurri, Paul Coffey and Wayne Gretzky. This is Kelly Hrudey at his best—candid, funny and opinionated. He takes us on the ice for the 1987 Easter Epic, where he stood tall in net and made seventy-three saves (to this day an NHL record for most saves made in a playoff game) against the Capitals. The fourth overtime period of Game Seven ended at 1:58 in the morning. In 1989, he joined Gretzky and Marty McSorley on a team that took Los Angeles by storm. The dressing room was always full of stars and the Kings travelled in Hollywood circles. Sylvester Stallone once gave a Rocky-style pep talk, and there was lunch with John Candy and a celebrity-filled birthday party at John McEnroe’s home in Malibu with Bruce Springsteen and Bruce Willis. After a legendary series against the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1993, the Kings made it to the franchise’s first Stanley Cup final, against Patrick Roy and the Canadiens in three nail-biting overtimes. Hrudey tells us about his encounters with the great and the not-so great, the inspiring victories, missed opportunities, heartfelt moments and outright craziness. In Calling the Shots, Hrudey has collaborated with bestselling author Kirstie McLellan Day as he shares lively, insightful, funny and surprising stories about life in the NHL.

Memoir of a Hockey Nobody is the unlikely true story of an average Canadian kid who grew up playing street hockey. Although he didn't learn how to skate until his late teens, he took a shot at entering the world of professional ice hockey with, shall we say, haphazard results. This is an "against all odds" tale of one man's journey from Vancouver, to all over Western Canada, California, The Yukon, and Alaska. Seemingly blocked at every turn, from managers who believed that someone who came from such humble beginnings couldn't be any good, to coaches who would rather see big names with bigger reputations. It's a story of tragedy, triumph and determination. A roller coaster ride with hilarious anecdotes of all the characters he met along the way. This is a tale for those who dare to live their dream!
