Summary

In 2005 during the National Hockey League's year-long lockout of North American teams, Calgary Flames' co-founder Harley Hotchkiss - chair of the league - met alone with Trevor Linden, president of the NHL Players' Association. The wisdom and honesty of the team owner, many decades older, helped influence the popular young centre to convince fellow players to settle the dispute. Harley has had that remarkable effect on people throughout his astonishing career in sports, business, and the community - a hat trick fulfilling his three goals in life. His absorbing memoir is an insider's guide to the development of North American hockey; the growth of the Canadian oil and gas industry witnessed by one of its most influential and individualistic entrepreneurs; and the behind-the-scenes story of enlightened philanthropy. Along the way, the Ontario tobacco-farmer's son tells of doing deals with the legendary Boone Pickens, going on safari with Swedish royalty, and becoming a partner with the mysterious Baron Carlo von Maffei.
