Ty Dilello


The Top 50 Manitoba Hockey Players Of All Time


Jonathan Toews, Andy Bathgate, Ron Hextall, Bobby Clarke, Terry Sawchuk… who is the greatest of all time?

Coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the NHL, Golden Boys looks at fifty players that have shaped the history of hockey in Manitoba. Featuring detailed biographies, rare photographs and never-been-told-before stories, Golden Boys is sure to delight, surprise and cause arguments among hockey fans young and old.

“there’s no shortage of information on the superstars like Bobby Clarke and Terry Sawchuk, regardless of what era they’re from. But how will he get a take on Bones Raleigh or Dan Bain? The answer is through impressive, unending research. Dilello scoured every source imaginable, be it the written record or, where possible, talking to the player or their families.  He even scoured through military documents. The result is a true understanding that is passed on to the reader in the book. The other thing that is passed on is the author’s passion for the project. Some hockey books can seem tired or forced. Dilello’s enthusiasm for the research comes through time and again as you flip the pages of this book.” – Hockey Book Reviews
