Derek Sanderson, Bruins Legend Book Signing in Framingham

Filed under: Around Town,Sports by News Staff at 5:19 pm on March 14, 2013

[book cover] Derek Sanderson: Crossing the Line

Derek Sanderson's "Crossing the Line", autobiography of Boston Bruins legend -- "The outrageous story of a hockey original"

FRAMINGHAM, MA - Boston Bruins fans will have the opportunity to meet two-time Stanley Cup champion Derek Sanderson at a book signing he will conduct in Framingham on Saturday, March 23rd, 2013 from 11:00am 'til 1:00pm at The Paper Store, located in Shopper's World, 1 Worcester Rd, (Route 9), Framingham, MA.

Sanderson will be signing copies of his new book "Crossing the Line:  The Outrageous Story of a Hockey Original".

The book is an autobiography of one of hockey’s first rebels and a beloved member of the "Big Bad Bruins," this book shares how Derek Sanderson’s ferocious style helped lead the team to two Stanley Cup victories in the early 1970s.

Living life in the fast lane, Sanderson grew his hair long, developed a serious drinking problem, and eventually found himself out of the league and prowling the streets for his next drink.

In Crossing the Line, Sanderson comes clean on his life in hockey, the demons that threatened to consume him, and the strength and courage it took to fight his way back. Today a successful entrepreneur and speaker, Sanderson’s incredible story is a must read for any fan of hockey.

(Editor's note: It was local folklore that in the 1970's, the round concrete house high-up on the westbound side of Edmand's Road just after Carter Drive was being built for Sanderson -- and that due to his financial downfall he never lived in the house... maybe someone will ask him about this...)
