King of Russia

imageThe Globe & Mail’s Eric Duhatschek has co-authored a book with Dave King:

Had a chance to catch up with Dave King last night for the first time in months. It was at the launch party in Calgary for the book we collaborated on about his year of coaching in Russia, a crazy and wildly successful season in which the team won so many games in the regular season that they ran out of bonus money to pay the players and as a result, dipped into their travel funds to stay within the budget (dooming them to commercial instead of charter flights for the final quarter of the regular season).

Called King Of Russia and published by McClelland & Stewart, it chronicles the 2005-06 season of the Super League team, Metallurg Magnitogorsk, which coincided with Evgeni Malkin’s final year in Russia.

Book available at Amazon.com if anyone is interested. Probably be quite fascinating, actually.
