    “If you think it’s tough to become a player in the National Hockey League, try becoming a radio or television play-by-play announcer! Bruce has been a part of a number of special moments in the game of hockey but has never forgotten people along the way. The story of Bruce’s life is fun and interesting and this really comes through in this enjoyable book.”
    Andy Murray, former head coach of NHLs Los Angeles Kings and St. Louis Blues
