A celebration of the unsung heroes behind the game, including first-hand stories from moms of the NHL's biggest stars Hockey Moms laces together the stories of NHL hockey moms like Kelly McDavid and Ema Matthews with those of mothers who never expected their children to set foot on the ice. With insight, warmth, honesty and humour, more than thirty hockey moms share their own journeys as they figure out how to juggle trips to the rink with raising a family, building their own backyard rinks, finding ways to pay for new gear and dealing with the sometimes-heartbreaking setbacks faced along the way. We learn first-hand, through personal examples, that there are different pathways that lead our children where they want to go. Often, it's mothers who carry the emotional burden of helping kids navigate their path. Hockey Moms features untold stories of the highs and the lows, the challenges and the triumphs, from the women who are the heart of the game. A perfect gift for the more than 600,000 hockey moms in Canada.
