Kerry Fraser Media/Book Signing Itinerary: The Final Call, Hockey Stories from a Legend in Stripes
After thirty years as an official in the National Hockey League, legendary referee Kerry Fraser has decided to hang up his skates and enjoy the game from the other side of the boards. Never shy about offering his opinion or afraid to step in and separate an on-ice fight, Fraser is arguably the most respected referee in the history of the game. Over the course of the 2,165 NHL contests he oversaw, Fraser has shown himself to be an unbiased, courageous, and sometimes controversial judge.
In The Final Call, Fraser provides a highly entertaining, honest, and sometimes hard-hitting look at the game and its many faces and changes over his record-breaking career. Go to ice level and experience first-hand the interactions of your favourite players and coaches from the man you love to hate!

Pelle Lindbergh - Behind the White Mask by Bill Meltzer and Thomas Tynander
A Book Review by Lois Witulski “Behind the White Mask” tells the story of the late Flyers goalie Pelle Lindbergh. Authors Bill Meltzer and Thomas Tynander take us through Pelle’s life from his childhood growing up in Sweden, to meeting his beloved fiancée Kerstin, to his love of speed and fast cars, to his amazing hockey career and finally to his tragic death. I laughed and I cried, as this book is both inspiring and heartbreaking all at the same time.
The book is written as two stories. The odd numbered chapters tell the story of the days leading up to and immediately following Pelle’s death. This is a story of fate. As the events in the hours leading up to Pelle’s horrific accident unfold, you will read about the many circumstances that brought his life to such a terrible ending. You will feel the pain of Pelle’s family, friends and teammates, almost as if you were there yourself.
The even number chapters tell the story of Pelle’s life. This is a story of inspiration. Pelle decided at a very young age that he would one day play for the Philadelphia Flyers of the NHL. As a young boy, Pelle chose the Flyers as his favorite team simply because he liked the logo. But as the years go by, he sees films of the two Flyers Stanley Cup wins and begins to idolize and emulate goaltender Bernie Parent. Pelle was determined, he never gave up and by the mid 1980’s, his dream had finally come true.
The stories finally combine in the final chapters, where you will relive the aftermath of Pelle’s death. Many lives were changed on that unfortunate day and you will learn how Pelle’s loved ones had to cope with their sudden loss and eventually move on. This book is a “must read” for any Flyers fan, hockey fan or sports fan. I highly recommend this well-written biography of the life of Pelle Lindbergh. Both on the ice and off, Pelle accomplished a lot in his short life and now we are finally able share in it. I’m so glad that I did.
