New Minnesota High School Hockey Book Out

Post by politicalpuck » Sun Nov 20, 2011 1:20 am

Scarlet Ice, the story of John Janavaras and his 1994-95 Mankato West hockey team, will be in print in December. Hockey coaches, players and fans will find this story fascinating and inspiring.

More information about the book, including sample chapters, is found at these two sites.

Former Mankato West head coach Mike Carroll recently read Scarlet Ice:

"Hi Roger, I read the book, picked it up at 9:30 Wednesday, couldn't put it down. I thought you did a very good job capturing the feelings of the kids and parents dealing with all the issues of their respective teams, school, and families. The specific game story was very detailing and revealing of all the angles playing into the whole story. It brought back memories and specifics that I had not remembered. Also, I had a hard time emotionally while reading it, especially the "game". I think your thoroughness; your blood, sweat and tears that you put into the book were rewarded. Great job!"
