Default Grim Reaper

Just finished reading the book “Grim Reaper” , authored by ex Flame Stu Grimson.

It is an exceptional read and profile of the personhood and career experiences, on and off the ice, of an NHL enforcer/protector.

Quite remarkable that two of the best books I have read on the life and experiences of a NHL hockey player have been authored by two players, who became lawyers; “The Game” by Ken Dryden being the other.

Yes absolutely. Though it’s a tough read because its utterly heart breaking to read about Montador
