Book Description

10 Nov 2012
Sudden Death brings to life the incredible ongoing saga of the Swift Current Broncos hockey team. After a tragic game-day bus accident on December 30, 1986, left four of its star players dead, the first-year Western Hockey League team was faced with nearly insurmountable odds against not only its future success but its very survival. The heartbreaking story made headlines across North America, and the club garnered acclaim when it triumphantly rebounded and won the Canadian Hockey League's prestigious Memorial Cup in 1989. Many of the surviving Broncos continued their successful hockey careers in the NHL, among them 2012 Hockey Hall of Famer Joe Sakic, Sheldon Kennedy, and Sudden Death co-author Bob Wilkie. Years later the Broncos' tragedy-to-triumph tale was overshadowed when the team's former coach, Graham James, was convicted of sexual assault against Sheldon Kennedy, Theoren Fleury, and Todd Holt, all of whom played for him.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good hockey read. 5 Jan 2013
By james - port perry Canada - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
this book is able to approach some very difficult, in fact, heart-wrenching stories in a sensitive and respectful fashion, and make for an interesting and informative read. Fans of Canada's western hockey league, and junior hockey in general will find it a captivating account of not only a tragedy, but of courage and achievement. The authors have been able to produce a book that is insightful without resorting to sensationalism, and achieve credibility and respect in how they were able to tell their personal story. A must-read for Canadian hockey players from young adult age and up, coaches and fans of today.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must For those who love junior hockey and the WHL 28 April 2013
By Jeffrey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I didn't know what to expect from this book. I have supported WHL hockey from an American standpoint for over 30+ years. I remember the tragic bus crash in 1986, but only knew a bare fraction of the aftermath. Then there is the Graham James story on top of that. This book answered many, many questions about that very sad and awful affair. If you love sports history and especially of the great sport of North American ice hockey and especially so of the junior, pre-NHL developmental levels, this book is a must read, I highly recommend it.

2.0 out of 5 stars How many ways can you say the same thing 28 Feb 2013
By J. Fleury - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The way this is put together is more like small news articles that connect. Each section or chapter say the exact same thing even reverting back to a previously mentioned view point. It didn't really tell me anymore about the tragic accident or those involved
