Description

?It all comes down to making the right life choices,” says the NHL’s legendary Reggie Leach, and this intimate biography lays bare the decisions that led him to become one of the best snipers in hockey history. Nicknamed the Riverton Rifle for his thrilling speed and deadly shooting skills, Leach overcame a childhood marked by poverty and racism to rise through the NHL, playing for the Stanley Cup-winning 1975 Philadelphia Flyers. Through Leach’s own recollections, The Riverton Rifle traces his trajectory from humble beginnings to NHL stardom. It follows the dramatic fall caused by his drinking problem and his subsequent rebirth as a successful businessman, family man, and pillar of the Aboriginal community.

Contributor Notes

Hockey legend Reggie Leach was member of the renowned Broad Street Bullies-era Philadelphia Flyers, where the sniper set goal-scoring records that still stand today. Off the ice Reggie is well known for his fundraising work and for steering Aboriginal youth towards making positive life choices.
