Morgan James Publishing (publisher)

"Making Men From The Boys" chronicles a young man’s career through the ranks of Canadian junior hockey and the life lessons he learned as a result of the journey. Packed with stories, anecdotes and principles of masculinity, each chapter describes how NHLer’s like Carey Price and Rick Rypien took leadership roles in junior hockey that destined them for the NHL, followed by a lesson drawn from each story. This unadulterated, beneath-the-stands look at junior hockey gives players, parents and fans a glimpse of the intangible education these and other junior players receive while their friends are still in high school. North American junior hockey expert and author Nick Olynyk also reveals what he learned from playing under future NHL coaches, sitting along side to-be professional goons and ultimately getting his chance at a championship in his final season. His story draws the lessons from hockey that any young man can use to achieve success in career, relationships and ultimate purpose throughout life. It’s a beauty.
