I am thrilled to announce the publication of my new e-book, "Thoughts From the Bench."
The book is a collection of my columns for Minnesota Hockey  and takes a refreshing and common sense look at amateur ice hockey from my perspective as USA Hockey Associate Coach in Chief/Minnesota and past Coach In Chief for Minnesota Hockey, and on my 40 years coaching hockey at all levels, including USA Hockey elite level programs.
The book has something for everyone involved in hockey, from youth and high school to junior hockey players, from coaches to parents.
Included are chapters on such topics as Short Benches, Helping Kids Thru Try Outs, Hydration for Hockey Players, and Undersanding the Language of Hockey, and much more.
The book is priced at $4.95, but 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Defending The Blue Line , a non profit dedicated to helping the children of military families afford to play hockey across the country.
It's a true win-win: parents get a great book about hockey and sales help afford kids with parents in the military a chance to stay on the ice.

I thank you and military families and their kids thank you!
