The Doug Harvey StoryBook - 2002
A perennial all-star and seven-time winner of the Norris Trophy for best defenseman, Doug Harvey was a cornerstone of the legendary Montreal Canadiens, winners of five consecutive Stanley Cup trophies. This is a rare biography of an extraordinary athlete who turned down careers in football and baseball to become one of the world's greatest hockey players. It tells the story of a remarkable individual--a man who was as irreverently funny, generous, and kind as he was obstinate, hard-drinking, and explosive. He was a leader and friend to his teammates, a troublemaker and rabble-rouser to hockey management. Well-written and painstakingly researched, this biography offers a full view of the player, coach, and man.
