Hockey fans will be able to spend time away from the rink with stories about some of their favorite players. Hockey legend Gordie Howe is offering his new memoir called Mr. Hockey.
G.P. Putnam’s Sons said on Monday that the memoir is due on shelves Oct. 14. The book is planned to be “the definitive account” of Howe’s life, according to the Associated Press.
The book starts with a story of his birth in a farmhouse in Canada. The hockey player was originally from the province of Saskatchewan. Howe, 85, won the Hart Trophy for the league’s most valuable player.
“I have been lucky," Howe said, according to The Globe and Mail. "I got to do something I loved for more than my fair share of years. But no accomplishment is about just one person – no championship, no statistic, and certainly not a whole career. It’s a pleasure to tell my story with this book, and especially to include the people who have meant so much to me along the way.”
The book will be released in October by Putnam, an imprint of Penguin Random House.
