The "Magician" has written his memoirs.
Episode 69 of the Pro Hockey Alumni Podcast features the return of one of our favorite guests -- WHA scoring king Andre Lacroix. Andre has written his memoir -- “After the Second Snowfall”, which details his amazing hockey journey through pro hockey in the 1960s and 1970s and his fascinating life after leaving the game.
Andre, of course, was an original Philadelphia Flyer in the NHL and a WHA pioneer in 1972. By the mid 70s he had established himself as one of the premier players in either league.
Known as the “Magician” for his superb playmaking and stick handling skills, Andre also proved to be a skillful negotiator, playing for six WHA franchises without ever having been traded.
Post retirement, Andre has used his celebrity to bolster charitable organizations and eventually create his own foundation for those with special needs.
“After the Second Snowfall” is available now on Amazon.com. The link is in the shownotes.
In this episode, Andre and I discuss the process of writing this compelling book. At the conclusion of that discussion, I’ll replay my original and entertaining 2018 interview with Andre from episode #9.
