Ken Dryden in Conversation with Alison Broddle

1601 Johnston St.

Ken Dryden’s The Game was indisputably one of the best books ever written on the sport of hockey, and was a finalist for a Governor General’s Literary Award. But now the former NHL star and former MP has issued a challenge in his new book, Game Change: make hockey safer or risk losing it altogether. Focusing on a journeyman NHL defenceman dead at 35 because of concussions, Dryden argues that today’s players are bigger, stronger and faster, and that the game has to change to protect them—at all ages. Dryden has a plan directed at players, fans, parents and, most of all, decision makers at the NHL. If you love hockey, you’ll want to hear about it from the game changer himself, Ken Dryden.
