As hockey continues to evolve, so to do the people within the game, and those surrounding it.

Everyday Hockey Heroes: Inspiring Stories On and Off the Ice (Simon and Schuster) highlights individuals who have triumphed over adversity, overcome great odds and blazed new trails.

From household names like Wayne Simmonds (Philadelphia Flyers) and Andi Petrillo (TSN) to those who go about their lives far away from the spotlight, veteran broadcasters/writers Jim Lang (105.9 The Region, formerly Sportsnet) and Bob McKenzie (TSN) uncover uplifting stories from across Canada which are told in first person narrative.

SportsLit is pleased to have Lang join the program to converse about his latest release.
