Former Red Wing star Darren McCarty pulls no punches in new book
He calls himself a "hockey rock star" – and he's earned the right to do just that.
Whether it was his 15 seasons as an NHL enforcer, the four Stanley Cups he won with the Red Wings, the legendary "Fight Night at the Joe" when he took down Claude Lemieux of the Avalanche, or his rock band "Grinder," Darren McCarty has played hard and lived hard, coping with family issues and addiction even as he skated to NHL stardom wearing No 25.
He tells his story in an autobiography called "My Last Fight: The True Story of a Hockey Rock Star," written with the help of journalist Kevin Allen.
And, just like Darren on the ice, this book pulls no punches.
