William Roy “Bill” Brownridge is one of Canada’s most popular hockey artists and author of four Canadian classic children’s hockey books. The game of hockey – with emphasis on children’s enjoyment of playing this great game – has been a life-long inspiration for Bill. His Heart of Hockey® website offers a visual celebration of the powerful emotions Canada’s game evokes for all of us.

Bill hopes his artwork helps you rekindle many wonderful memories and invites you to bring home your own “The Spirit of the Game”.
