Description


Reveals the man behind the mask—the triumphs and failures of one of the greatest goaltenders in the history of hockey

In the early 1970s, a young Patrick Roy laced up his hockey skates for the very first time, like thousands of other kids. More than 30 years later, his indomitable will to win and his focus on being the very best brought him four Stanley Cups, three Conn Smythe trophies, three Vezina trophies, and many more individual honors. An incredible hockey talent who was instrumental in changing the very art of goaltending, Roy’s success was driven as much by determination and perseverance as by talent. Patrick Roy: Winning, Nothing Else brings to life Roy’s phenomenal career and unmasks his more mysterious personal side. Michel Roy, the father of this great sports legend, reveals what makes Patrick tick, taking us behind the scenes and into the family life of one of the greatest goaltenders of all time.
