Andrew Caddell, Dave Stubbs and Philip Caddell have written for readers of all ages a wonderful collection of short stories about Canada's passion for hockey. Ranging from the 1935 Stanley Cup to the present day, The Goal is a salute to the fans who pay to watch, the kids who play the game and the players who never made it.

Review - 'There is a timeless charm to the stories of The Goal. They bridge the old-timer's longing for past glory with the rookie's discovery of Canada's greatest game.' - The Ottawa Review of Books

Review #2 - 'This is very much a fan's-eye view of hockey, testifying to the sport's deep roots in the national psyche and capturing with great warmth how a love of the game is born and how it gets passed from one generation to the next.' Ian McGillis, Montreal Gazette
