Fighting in hockey – and the role of the ‘tough guy’ – have been brought into question year after year. This season, even more rules were implemented to help protect players from long-term symptoms accompanying injuries from playing this role in hockey.

In Warriors on the Ice: Hockey’s Toughest Talk, author Brian D’Ambrosio, talks to 30 of the games former tough guys. Each reveal their true feelings about the role they played during their career – their injuries, their best and worst memories, and where they are now career-wise and in terms of mental and physical health.

In this quote-driven book, D’Ambrosio re-analyzes the question of whether or not there’s a place in the game of fighting and raises another question – whether or not there will ever be a tough guy with as much of an impact as Bob Probert.

For the full review of D’Ambrosio’s book, check out my story.
