December 17, 2019

It’s a hat-trick!

For the third time, Ken Reid (co-anchor - prime time weeknight edition of Sportsnet Central), joins SportsLit to discuss a new book.

So clear your audio tracks, it’s time to learn about Eddie “The Entertainer” Shack.

Hockey player. Outlier. Salesman.  

Shack, now 82, is a living link to the Maple Leafs’ last Stanley Cup in 1967, one of four he won with Toronto in the 1960’s. 

The illiterate son of Ukrainian Immigrants, he has always excelled by going with his gut and shooting from the hip.

Find out how his flamboyant personality made him a hit, both on and off the ice.
