OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 12, 2008) - Hockey Canada, Fenn Publishing, and McAlpine Sports Management announced today that the book Dominant Dany Heatley, authored by National Hockey League (NHL) player Dany Heatley with Lorna Schultz Nicholson, will be released Tuesday, Nov. 25.
Written in the first person, Dominant Dany Heatley takes readers through a personal and heartfelt story about the Ottawa Senators left winger's family, friends, commitment to his country and decisions that have made him one of the leading talents in hockey today.
"Scoring goals, like you'll read in the book, is what I love to do," said Heatley. "So writing my story for others to read was not as easy as playing hockey. But I believed it was important to share my experiences. We learn from our families, as I did with my dad, mom and brother, and if anyone can take anything from this book, it will have all made it worthwhile."
The 80-page autobiography, Dominant Dany Heatley, will be available in bookstores throughout Canada for $14.95 (Cdn) in paperback format on Nov. 25.
"Over the years, I have had the honour of working with Dany on Team Canada and I have been really impressed with the way he carries himself on and off the ice," said Hockey Hall of Famer Wayne Gretzky in the foreword to the book. "His actions and dedication tell me that he plays hockey for the love of the game. And to me, that means a lot."
The official book launch will take place in Ottawa on Tuesday, Dec. 2, the day before the Senators play host to the Atlanta Thrashers at Scotiabank Place. Heatley will also participate in book signings throughout the hockey season. Further details about the launch and book signings will be announced at a later date.
Dominant Dany Heatley follows other Hockey Canada-related youth books published by H.B. Fenn and Company Ltd. such as, The Sensational Jarome Iginla, The Spectacular Sidney Crosby, and H.E.A.R.T. (Cassie Campbell).
Nicholson is the author of children's hockey novels and a mystery novel. She is currently working on Pink Power, a non-fiction book about the first-ever World Women's Hockey Championship, held in Ottawa in 1990.
