About The Book
As a player, coach, general manager, scout and broadcaster, Glen Sonmor has seen it all out on the ice over the past 75 years and it all comes to life in the pages of “Old Time Hockey,” a hilarious and heart-warming biography about one the of game’s greatest living legends. World renowned in hockey circles as a master story-teller, Sonmor opens the vault and dishes the goods about everything from his playing days with the old Minneapolis Millers and New York Rangers; to his coaching stints with the University of Minnesota, the WHA’s Fighting Saints, NHL’s Minnesota North Stars and IHL’s Minnesota Moose. Sonmor, who presently serves as both a radio color analyst for the Golden Gopher hockey team as well as a scout for the NHL’s Minnesota Wild, talks candidly about everything from his career-ending eye injury, to how he overcame his extremely emotional battle with alcoholism. Mixed in between, Sonmor opens up about the two driving forces in his life, hockey and alcoholism, as well as his two guardian angels and heroes — John Mariucci and Lou Nanne. It is an inspirational story about hope, perseverance and gut-busting humor. From tales of bench-clearing brawls to thoughts and opinions about the current state-of-the-state of the game today, it’s all in there. Enjoy!
