"The Big M" tells the story of the quiet and self-effacing hockey legend whose mighty strides and explosive shot contributed to six Stanley Cup teams, four with the Toronto Maple Leafs and two with the Montreal Canadians. He also played in the 1972 Canada-Russia series with his brother, Peter. With affection and candor, Ted Mahovlich describes Frank's formative years, a typical small-town northern Ontario kid, who played away the frozen nights ricocheting shots off his sister Anne, her makeshift Eaton's catalogue goalie pads strapped to her legs. Ted recounts Frank's early career in the old farm team system, boarding at St. Michael's College in Toronto. He gives insight into how the league changed as the NHL moved from the original six teams to expansion, and reveals the million dollar Mahovlich trade that never was, from the Leafs to the Chicago Black Hawks. Delving into the huge differences between the Canadiens and the Leafs, Frank explains why Montreal has a glorious hockey tradition - and why Toronto doesn't. "The Big M" also reveals the very private Frank Mahovlich, a quiet, intelligent player who suffered public humiliation at the hands of Leafs' coach and general manager Punch Imlach.
A sports biography packed with wonderful anecdotes, terrific photos from Frank's own collection, and new insights into hockey's golden age, "The Big M" is a great read, a warm portrait of one of hockey's most admired players - and now one of our newest appointees to the Senate - perfect for both young and old hockey fans.
