So your Son Wants to Play in the NHL?
A Useful Book for Every Serious Hockey FamilyBook - 1998
This book is about one young athlete's road to the NHL. It is told in two voices. First by Jay Bylsma, the father who flooded the backyard rink, and who encouraged all of his five children to make the most of their talents. The second voice telling the story is Dan Bylsma, the son. A gifted athlete, he chose to leave home in Michigan to play Junior "B" hockey for St. Marys in Ontario. He then took the academic route, graduating from Bowling Green State University in 1992. The next four years Dan, backed by his father and the rest of the family, never gave up on his NHL dream. He played for several minor league teams, attended several NHL camps, and won a contract with the L.A. Kings. Along the way, he, like his father, learned a great deal about hockey and about life. In this book they pass it on.
