There is only one sport, outside of actual combat disciplines, where two participants can square off in old fashioned, bare-knuckle pugilism without facing swift ejection. Hockey has long held a place for two willing combatants, and it has been said that “no one goes for popcorn during a fight.”

Fans know what to expect on the ice from players with nicknames like Knuckles, The Grim Reaper, The Bruise Brothers, or The Hammer. Yet off the ice, the men who step into these brutish roles are often the kindest, gentlest and most popular players on a team--not to mention some of the best storytellers to ever lace up skates.

Tough Guys honors the experiences of these NHL enforcers throughout history. Author and longtime broadcaster Dale Arnold profiles fighters across eras, sharing their journeys, struggles, and moments of glory.
Dale Arnold hosts Boston Bruins television broadcasts on NESN as well as the daily Dale, Holley & Keefe show on WEEI radio. He is the only person who has done play-by-play broadcasts for all five of the Boston area's major professional sports franchises. Arnold is the author of If These Walls Could Talk: Boston Bruins and the co-author of Shawn Thornton: Fighting My Way to the Top.
