Forbie—Gary MacDougallOn November 28, Retromedia Publishing released its 16th book—Forbie by Gary MacDougall.

Forbie is a book about a boy who dreamed about fire on water and then turned that dream into fire on ice when he joined the National Hockey League. It’s about elations, disappointments, controversial career moments and some “doggone” good opportunities, a very famous mad melee, Forbes Taylor Kennedy’s sweet Marie and his years as a coach.

The author, Gary MacDougall, is a 47-year journalist and the former managing editor of The Guardian in Charlottetown, PEI. This is the first book he has written.

Forbie includes stories of  hockey greats Tim Horton, Gordie Howe, Henri Richard, Sam Pollock, Dick Irwin Sr., Jamie Kennedy, Jake Kennedy, Mike Kennedy, King Clancy, Punch Imlach, Rocket Richard, Bobby Hull, Jean Beliveau, Terry Sawchuk, Doug Harvey, “Terrible” Ted Green, Johnny Bucyk, Brad Richards, Gerard “Turk” Gallant and Adam McQuaid.

The main part of Forbie is divided into three periods: young Forbie up until the end of his junior hockey days; his professional playing days; and his family life and his coaching career.

The 234-page paperback book contains a Forward by Ron MacLean of Hockey Night in Canada and co-host of Rogers Hometown Hockey, Acknowledgements, Notes from the Author and from the Sponsors, statistics, a career hockey timeline and black and white photographs.

Forbie is available at, the Bookmark, Indigo/Coles, Beaconsfield Historic House and Tim Hortons restaurants on PEI.
