The Cup, by D. P. Hardwick

A blizzard, a game, and a magical night!

DP Hardwick takes us on a journey through the ups and downs of a game and childhood experiences. Follow the bizarre antics of a road hockey game in frigid Canada in the early 70’s when sports were still in the hands of the kids. Meet each lovable character as they navigate their lives and play in game 7 of the Stanley Cup final…under a street light in front of their homes.

The Cup is a touching, nostalgic story of friendship, teamwork and unlikely heroes. As Hardwick learned from his father and first coach, it’s not really about a game, it’s about life.
