About the book:

Players explode onto the ice, legs pumping fast from the rush of adrenaline. The student section, awash in school colors, is screaming as one while the band blares out the fight song. Fans young and old are on their feet clapping to the music, while the PA announcer strains to get in a few last words before the game starts. Emotions run high.

Bruce Haas has captured the passion men's Division 1 college hockey incites through interviews with former players, coaches, officials, and fans, presenting their perspectives on everything from team camaraderie and leadership to how officials approach calling a game. Coaches talk about their role in developing young men, former players discuss what it's like to win the NCAA tournament, and fans provide stories and insights on why they love the game so much. Great Game! gives readers a variety of perspectives in a way few sports books have done before.

Features a brief story about UND long time super-fan and supporter Al Pearson.

About the Author

Bruce Haas grew up in the Boston area. He has been a hockey player and fan since the late 1950s. His passion for college hockey started as a player for Colby College and has grown over the years. He follows Hockey East closely and annually attends the Beanpot and the Frozen Four tournaments, finding time to travel around the Northeast to enjoy other college games. It was meeting and talking with Frozen Four fans that got him interested in writing this book.

Bruce has been a youth hockey coach for more than forty years and enjoys teaching all ages, most recently in Learn to Play programs for girls and hockey moms. After a career in banking, he spent six years working in the nonprofit sector until retiring in 2015. He lives in Hingham, Massachusetts, with his wife, Lin.
