Caps PR released a statement today about head coach Bruce Boudreau getting his own book deal. I really thought I had him beat for my autobiography. But, what can you do? Bruce's story should be an interesting with his turn around of the Washington Capitals last year as the crowning jewel. It will be a book I would definitely be purchasing.
"Washington Capitals head coach Bruce Boudreau has signed a deal with Potomac Books, Inc. to publish his autobiography. The book, co-written with Tim Leone of The Patriot-News in Harrisburg, Pa., is scheduled to come out in October of 2009. It will chronicle the colorful Boudreau's playing and coaching career and his storybook rise to the Capitals after more than three decades in the minor leagues. Boudreau guided Washington from last place to the Southeast Division championship in 2007-08 and won the Jack Adams Award as NHL Coach of the Year. Leone, a winner of numerous national and state sportswriting awards, covered Boudreau during his tenure as head coach of the American Hockey League's Hershey Bears. Potomac Books, Inc., based in Dulles, Va., is located on the Internet at www.potomacbooksinc.com."
