Red Wings’ Stanley Cup–winning teams, McCarty played the role of enforcer from 1993 to 2004 and returning again in 2008 and 2009. His “Grind Line” physically overmatched some of the best offensive lines in the NHL, but he was more than just a brawler: his 127 career goals included several of the highlight variety, including an inside-out move against Philadelphia in the clinching game of the 1997 Stanley Cup Finals. My Last Fight, an autobiography, details what may have endeared him most to his fans: the honest, open way he has dealt with his struggles in life off the ice. Whether dealing with substance abuse, bankruptcy, divorce, or the death of his father, Darren McCarty has always seemed to persevere.

Barnes and Noble welcomes the community to participate in the Darren McCarty book signing on Friday, March 7, 2014 beginning at 7:00pm. The Rochester Hills Barnes & Noble is located at 2800 South Rochester Road. Line tickets will be available at the Customer Service Desk beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, March 7. You must purchase your copy of My Last Fight by Darren McCarty prior to assembling in the signing line.
