All the Way: My Life on Ice by Jordin Tootoo (2014)

“The captain, a fan favourite, a star in international competition, Tootoo was always a leader. And when he was drafted by Nashville and made the Predators, he became a leader in another way--as the first player of Inuk descent to suit up in the NHL.
    All the challenges and pressure would have been more than enough for any rookie, but Tootoo faced something far more difficult: the tragic loss of his older brother. Though he played through it, Tootoo suffered from many of the same problems that have plagued so many people from his community.
     Told in Tootoo's bold voice, with contributions by Stephen Brunt, arguably one of the best sportswriters, All the Way is the searing, honest tale of a young man who has risen to every challenge but all too nearly fell short in the toughest game of all.”
