Publisher's Summary

Controversial hockey star Sean Avery's no-holds-barred memoir of high living and bad behavior in the NHL - coupled with the behind-the-scenes glitter of celebrity and media nightlife in New York and LA.
As one of the NHL's most polarizing players, Sean Avery turned the rules of professional hockey on its head. For 13 seasons Avery played for some of the toughest, most storied franchises in the league, including the Detroit Red Wings, the Los Angeles Kings, and the New York Rangers, making his mark in each city as a player that was sometimes loved, often despised, but always controversial.
In Ice Capades, Avery takes his trademark candidness about the world of pro hockey and does for it what Jim Bouton's game-changing Ball Four did for baseball. Avery goes deep inside the sport to reveal every aspect of an athlete's life, from what they do with their money and nights off to how they stay sharp and competitive in the league. While playing the talented villain in the NHL, Avery broke far away from his on-ice character in the off-season, and Ice Capades takes the listener inside the other unexpected and unprecedented roles that Avery inhabited - Vogue intern, fashion model, advertising executive, restauranteur, gay rights advocate, and many more.
Love him or hate him, Sean Avery changed the way professional hockey is played today. Rollickingly honest and compelling throughout, Ice Capades transcends the "sports book" genre and offers a rare, unvarnished glimpse into the world of 21st century hockey through the eyes of one of its most original and memorable players.

From a hockey fan

This was my first audiobook so I really have nothing to compare it to for an honest review. I enjoyed listening to the life of Sean Avery on and off the ice. Ive learned a lot about the hockey culture between players and found it very interesting. I don’t know if this was a good “performance” or not but it was like having your best friend come over to tell you what’s going on in their life over a beer. Good book for any hockey fan.

A Hockey Fan Must Read

As a hockey fan I loved it. Gave me a whole new perspective on the life of a NHLer, and a new view of Sean Avery. Very entertaining and laughed quite a bit.
