To play professional hockey, you need plenty of grit and determination--it's a physically and emotionally punishing job. Millions of people are expecting you to give your all, connect on your checks, outskate your competitors, and do whatever it takes to score goals. To perform at that level, you must be in impeccable shape all year round. You'll spend hundreds of hours practicing skills, working with teammates, and watching video. Plus you'll need to cope with constant media attention and all of the travel that goes with the 82-game season. But for those who reach the pros, the long hours and hard work are totally worth it.

This book, which was reviewed by 12-year National Hockey League (NHL) veteran Mark Parrish, offers an authentic look at what life is like as a pro hockey player. You'll learn:

* How players climb the ranks to reach the NHL

* The types of workouts and dietary plans NHL players use

* How NHL players prevent and treat injuries

Go behind the scenes and see what it's really like to be an NHL star!
