Terry Ryan was poised to take the hockey world by storm when he was selected eighth overall by the Montreal Canadiens in the 1995 NHL draft, their highest draft pick in a decade. Expected to go on to become a hockey star, Ryan played a total of eight NHL games for the Canadiens, scoring no goals and no assists: not exactly the career he, or anyone else, was expecting.
Though Terry’s NHL career wasn’t long, he experienced a lot and has no shortage of hilarious and fascinating revelations about life in pro hockey on and off the ice. In Tales of a First-Round Nothing, he recounts fighting with Tie Domi, partying with rock stars, and everything in between. Ryan tells it like it is, detailing his rocky relationship with Michel Therrien, head coach of the Canadiens, and explaining what life is like for a man who was unprepared to have his career over so soon.

    Any hockey fan would appreciate Terry Ryan's honest look back at his career. Great stories, interesting characters and a few things that if they happened to me I would never tell another soul! Gets bit repetitive near the end of the book with the sports is life metaphors.
  • Great read.

    I really enjoyed this book. I loved how Terry Ryan didn't sugar coat anything. He explains moments of himself being confident and humbled. Great job keeping me interested from start to finish.
