the book

Follow a gang of (mostly) Canadians as they wander from Lake Charles to El Paso, Waco to Monroe, Belton to Albuquerque, battling Mudbugs and Buzzards and Jackalopes, oh my! Marvel at how many times one bus can break down over the course of six months! Find out how one team can have two captains, two coaches and ten rookies. Smell the blood! Taste the beer! And look out for flying pucks!

Writer Jason Cohen joined the team in the locker room between periods, suffered through every bus ride and even spent a night in the penalty box as he came to know life in desert-style hockey.

Lively, irreverent, hilarious and poignant, Zamboni Rodeo will appeal to hockey fans and non-fans alike!

Now available in paperback!
