Featuring Rod Brind'Amour excerpt

"For me it was the highlight of my career. It represented a sort of validation for all the hard work I had put in for so many years prior. When we it that year, it was my 17th season in the league, and I wasn't sure if it was ever going to happen or not. I had always believed that the hard work would pay off sooner or later, though, and I was thrilled when it finally did. What made it even neater was doing it alongside so many other veteran players, such as Bret Hedican and Glen Wesley, who had also never won it up to that point. To see the joy in their eyes was amazing, and I am sure that they would say the same for me. It was just a wonderful experience all the way around, and it felt good to be part of something that brought so much joy to so many deserving people.

About the Book

To raise the Stanley Cup means that you have reached the pinnacle of professional hockey success; it means you are a champion -- the best of the best. Each player's epic journey to get to that sacred place has a unique and meaningful story behind it, however, and those stories are at the very core of "Raising Stanley." For more than two years Ross Bernstein researched, met and interviewed more than 100 players and coaches who all share one common denominator -- they had the distinct privilege of hoisting Lord Stanley's holy grail.
