For readers of The Boys in the Boat, the remarkable story of the unlikely Canadian hockey team that clinched Olympic gold in The announcement was shocking—Canada, the birthplace of hockey, would not be sending a team to the Winter Olympics in Switzerland.

Sergeant Frank Boucher was recruited to coach the team and begin the cross-Canada search for players. Hubert Brooks, a decorated flying officer and serial escapist from POW camps, was another early recruit. The ragtag team got off to a rough start, losing so many exhibition games that Canadian newspapers called them a disgrace to the country. They eliminated the American team, tied the Czech team and beat the Swiss as the hometown crowd pelted the Canadians with snowballs during the game.

Against All Odds is the inspiring untold story of a group of determined men, fresh from the battlefields of WWII, who surprised a nation and the world. Thanks for signing up!

Ten years ago, I remember watching him play for the Montreal Canadiens. Now, I am driving to the rink with him. His name never appeared. The odds were stacked against Dillon in that WHL draft. He stood just at the time. And as he sat in the Dallas locker room — listed at , pounds — you realize just how far he has come. There was a spirited fight with Jordan Tootoo in a game against Detroit.

In a recent win over Phoenix, he notched his first assist, then his first goal and then put a big hit on Oliver Ekman-Larsson, which led to a scrap with Kyle Chipchura. That added up to a Gordie Howe Hat Trick. He had a great bout with Tootoo. But that road to the NHL this season saw a lot of hard work, a little help from nature, and some bumps.

After his second season in Seattle he had hopes of being drafted by an NHL team. But there were no takers on draft weekend. I remember hearing the draft rankings at the end of the year, and I was pretty excited. I was kind of taking things for granted, I almost expected things to come. From that year on I think I really took steps forward in my game, and just never looked back.

Dillon had a breakout campaign in his final season of juniors, racking up 59 points 8 goals, 51 assists in 72 games for Seattle and several NHL teams, including the Stars, came calling on Dillon. Dillon said at least ten, perhaps as many as 15 teams, contacted him that final season of juniors. We had really good talks and then I had a chance to meet with Joe Nieuwendyk.
