I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing Bill Shvetz’s son today long distance from Ottawa. He told me some stories about his father that I had never heard before. It was so much fun to talk about the 1960s hockey team and to get an insight into the man his father was.
As Bill’s death was one of the events that spurred me to get working on the book, it was important to connect with his family. I now feel I know Bill as more than a hockey player.
I hope to talk with Bill’s widow tomorrow to see about photographs and more stories.
This is what this book is all about; the players and the stories. I am having the time of my life doing the last bits of research.
