By the age of ten Eric Zweig was already a budding sports fanatic who was filling his school news books with game reports instead of current events. He has been writing professionally about sports and sports history since graduating from Trent University in 1985 with a degree in Political Studies.
Eric’s first book, Hockey Night in the Dominion of Canada (Lester Publishing, 1992) was an historical novel set in the early days of professional hockey. He has gone on to write many non-fiction sports books for adults and children, and his biography Art Ross: The Hockey Legend Who Built the Bruins (Dundurn Press, 2015) won the inaugural Paul Kitchen Award for best research project from the Society for International Hockey Research in 2016.
