About The Book
After a failed attempt to make it as a walk-on to the University of Minnesota's Golden Gopher hockey team, Ross Bernstein opted instead to become the team's mascot, "Goldy the Gopher." His humorous accounts as a mischievous rodent, back at old Mariucci Arena, then inspired the 1992 best-seller: "Gopher Hockey by the Hockey Gopher." Featuring interviews and quotes from more than 100 former Gopher players, coaches, media personalities and people close to the program, the book is both hilarious as well as informative. Learn about the history of one of college hockey's greatest programs from the stars themselves as they open up and dish the goods on what it was like to wear the Maroon and Gold. Described by some as the "ultimate bathroom book," it details a behind the scenes look at everything from winning national championships to bench-clearing brawls. From John Mariucci to Herb Brooks, and from Glen Sonmor to Doug Woog, this book is a must read for any die-hard hockey fan!
