Product Overview

Goon: The True Story of an Unlikely Journey into Minor League Hockey chronicles the uniquely wild adventure of Doug Smith, who was determined to realize his dream of playing professional hockey, despite the fact he didn't start skating until the age of 19. Armed with a burning desire and his only marketable athletic abilities - those honed as an amateur boxer - Doug defeated impossible odds to win a championship ring and play in the world's second-best hockey league. Goon gives a raw and revealing insider's look at the riotous world of minor league hockey and the most peculiar role in all of sport - the Goon, whose job is to protect teammates from opposing ruffians. Come along as Doug Smith, an outsider in the hockey world, literally fights his way to the highest level of minor league hockey. You may never view the game in the same light again.
