For fans of NHL 24/7, a raw and revealing account of rollercoaster of a season of the Peterborough Petes the oldest and largest junior hockey league in Canada and launching pad for a record number of NHL stars.

Born in the 1950s as a farm team for the Montreal Canadiens, the Petes have graduated more players to the NHL than any other junior hockey team in the world so it's not surprising that Walter Gretzky wanted Wayne to play for the Petes (and he did for a brief time).
