Former ACHA player at the University of Washington and owner of 83, LLC hockey agency, Ryan Minkoff, has released a girl’s hockey children’s book titled Nora’s Hockey Dream. His passion for giving back to the game of hockey inspired Ryan to pen his first children’s book, which has garnered support from National Team members of Canada and the USA.
“Nora’s Hockey Dream brings back fond memories I have from my playing career and is a must-read for any family with a son or daughter in sports.” – Cassie Campbell-Pascall, Broadcaster, Hockey Night in Canada; Captain of Team Canada
“This beautiful story reminds me of so many bedtime conversations my parents and I had growing up. Women in sports are powerful and limitless.” – Winny Brown (Brodt), Minnesota Whitecaps Captain; USA National Team Member
“I love that Nora’s Hockey Dream shows and tells – it shows a girl who pushes through adversity and tells us all, no matter your gender, race, background, or ability, to dream big.” – Hannah Brandt, USA Olympian; PWHPA Member
Nora has never attended or even played in a hockey game. When her parents take her to the Women’s Professional Hockey League Championship between the Booming Thunder and the hometown Wicked Waves, Nora discovers a newfound passion. However, chasing after her big hockey dream might be harder than she thinks.
Ryan Minkoff is a former pro hockey player and the founder of 83, LLC, an ice hockey agency representing players around the globe. Last year, he published his hockey memoir Thin Ice.
