3. So You Want to Play in the NHL by Dan and Jay Bylsma
Yep, you read that correctly. Now Pittsburgh Penguins head coach and a Stanley Cup winner, Dan Bylsma wrote a book… a while back. This title was published in 2000, when Dan played for the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings. With his father, he shares his experience growing up into hockey and offers sound advice for young players looking to make it in the game. Even if you’re not a young hockey player searching for advice, it’s an interesting read, perhaps even moreso when you read it and realize that 13 years after this book was published, one of its authors is now an NHL head coach with a Stanley Cup ring.
