Game Changer

Father Bauer and the Great Experiment

Father David Bauer changed lives at the rink, in the classroom, and in the pulpit. Along the way, he created the first truly national Canadian hockey team. 

In 1963, a unique group of hockey players represented Canada abroad. They were committed to both their country and to Father Bauer. Whether shepherding the hockey program at St. Michael's College, Toronto or the men’s national team out of UBC, Bauer was both a spiritual leader and trailblazer.

Author Greg Oliver explores a Canadian icon, the teams that he put on the ice, and the rocky years of the 1970s when Canada didn't play international hockey.
