Brian Kilrea - also known as "Killer" - is one of the most famous coaching personalities in hockey. Inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2003, Killer is known as the winningest coach in junior hockey history, a two-time winner of the Memorial Cup, and winner of countless other divisional championships. Even the Canadian Hockey League's Coach of the Year award (which he has won four times) is now named after him! With his years as a player, 29 years as coach and now General Manager of the Ottawa 67's and two years spent with the New York Islanders, Killer has a lot of stories to tell. Stories about life in the juniors, about being a coach, about the young stars he molds for their futures, and stories from his players and colleagues about what it's like to work and live with Killer.Prone to yelling, cutting comments and colourful language, he is nevertheless adored by his players, beloved by his fans, and respected by the hockey establishment for his knowledge, motivation and dedication to the game. Brian Kilrea, with veteran hockey journalist James Duthie, delves into the very best of Killer's 60 years in hockey, stories that are hilarious, moving, and simply unforgettable.
