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.

Very engaging.

I admired Sean's candor of both the good and the bad. He at no time made me feel like what he was saying was mere BS! My only itch that went unscratched was his lack of his youth hockey development years. So if he didn't get to play hockey under star lit skies on frozen ponds with a hot chocolate chaser, what was it like from Squirts through PeeWees, Bantams, etc. ... until he made Juniors?

Really enjoyed it.

I'm new to hockey. I had no idea who this guy was before I got the book. I really liked the book, and Sean Avery's insights and his honesty.
