The first UK-born player to be drafted into the NHL and the finest ever to grace these shores, Scottish-born ice hockey legend, Tony Hand MBE tells his story from growing up on a council estate in Edinburgh and playing his first senior game at the tender age of 14 for the Murrayfield Racers to training with the Edmonton Oilers in the NHL and landing the grand slam with the Sheffield Steelers. In his own words, Tony takes you through his life from winning and losing at Wembley to the highs and lows with the GB national team, his clubs and players. Tony has coached Belfast, Dundee Stars (whom he took to a league and play-off double) and Edinburgh and is now with Manchester Phoenix. Find out why he didn't take up Edmonton's offer to stay in the NHL, what really happens on a European tour and why he was banned for taking a cold remedy. Savvy, witty and often controversial, Tony pulls no punches in describing his time in ice hockey and outlining how the sport should move forward.
