Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Paul Henderson will forever be recognized and remembered for his goal with 34 seconds remaining in the 8th game of the 1972 Summit Series. This goal gave Canada the lead and won them the series and with that the team became known as "the Team of the Century." And Paul's goal as, "the Goal of the Century." But there is more to Paul Henderson than just that one goal and in The Goal of My Life, Henderson opens up about scoring both on and off the ice. A family man and man with deep faith, Henderson lives each day with tremendous appreciation for the gifts life has rewarded him and has not allowed his recent diagnosis with cancer to alter his positive demeanor. Henderson takes fans back to the moment 1972 when Canada won the Summit Series, though additionally shares memories from his entire life and his early days playing hockey through to his retirement from the game and his personal challenges with Leukemia. Henderson is a hero and his book is one that all fans of hockey and life will enjoy.

About the Author

PAUL HENDERSON was born in Lucknow, Ontario. He played his junior hockey with the Hamilton Red Wings and lead the OHL in scoring before moving to the NHL to play for Detroit, then later Toronto, and finally Atlanta. Henderson was chosen to play for the 1972 Canadian Team that competed against the Soviets in the Summit Series. During the series, Henderson accumulated 7 goals, 3 of which were game winners, including his goal in Game 8 that has long been recognized as the "goal of the century." Since retiring from hockey in 1984, Henderson joined the seminary and now runs a Christian ministry. He is a published author and motivational speaker and both he and his wife speak at various marriage conferences to offer guidance and mentoring.
