There is a generation of Canadians who will never forget Paul Henderson’s series winning goal in the 1972 Summit Series. While Henderson’s goal, which was named the “goal of the century,” is unforgettable, there is a generation of hockey fans and Canadians who didn’t have a chance to experience or learn about this unique Canadian moment.
Today was the Official Launch of the children’s book, The Greatest Jersey Ever, based on the true story of Paul Henderson, and the greatest moment in Canadian sports history (the game 8 series winning goal scored by Paul Henderson in the 1972 Summit Series). This is an uplifting and inspiring story of pure heart and determination. It is a comeback story that is truly unbelievable. We are looking to create a timeless story, read by all ages while bringing generations together: parents and children, and grandparents and grandchildren. On September 28, 1972 a whole nation came together.
This book is 100% Canadian-Made from start to finish. This includes everything—printing, writing, illustrations, and graphics—basically all aspects of the project. The book will be a classic story that can be read for generations to come. And it will be a permanent record of the greatest moment in Canadian sports history.
