Hockey career

Born in Hamilton, Ontario, the son of Murray and Margaret Dryden, his brother Dave Dryden was also a goaltender. Dryden was drafted fourteenth overall by the Boston Bruins in the 1964 NHL Amateur Draft.

Having been traded by the Bruins to the Montreal Canadiens for Guy Allen and Paul Reid, two players who would never even make the NHL, Dryden made his NHL debut in mid-season 1971 for the Canadiens, and became the backbone of six Stanley Cup winning teams in the 1970s. During that first playoff season Dryden won the Conn Smythe Trophy, 1971, as the playoffs' most valuable player. The following year Dryden won the Calder Trophy, 1972, as the Rookie of the Year because the previous year he did not play enough regular season games to be eligible.

Compared to most other goaltending greats, Dryden's NHL career was extremely short: only seven full seasons. Therefore, statistically he did not amass record totals in most categories. However, although it has been noted that since he played for a dynasty, his statistical percentages are unparalleled. His regular season totals include a .790 winning percentage, a 2.24 goals against average, and, most incredibly, losing only 57 games while recording 46 shutouts in 397 total games. No other modern goaltender has ever been even remotely close to earning nearly as many shutouts as recording losing games. He won the Vezina Trophy as NHL's top goaltender five times and in the same years was selected as a First Team All-Star. Despite the comparative brevity of his career, in 1998, he was ranked number 25 on The Hockey News' list of the 100 Greatest Hockey Players.

Writing career

Book cover of The Game

Dryden wrote one little-known book during his hockey career: Face-Off at the Summit. This was written in diary form and outlined the Canadian experience in the famous Canada vs. Soviet Union series of 1972. The book is difficult to find and long out of print. It is a fairly standard account, unlike The Game which frequently digresses into non-hockey related information. After retiring from hockey Dryden became a dedicated author for a time. His book The Game (1983, ISBN 0-470-83355-6) was a commercial and critical success being nominated for a Governor General's Award. His next book, Home Game: Hockey and Life in Canada (1990, ISBN 0-7710-2872-5), written with Roy MacGregor, was developed into an award-winning Canadian Broadcasting Corporation six-part documentary series for television. His third book was The moved and the shaken: The story of one man's life (1993, ISBN 0-670-82170-5 ). His fourth book was In School: Our Kids, Our Teachers, Our Classrooms (1995, ISBN 0-7710-2869-5), written with Roy MacGregor, was about Canada’s education system.

While campaigning, an incident occurred when a letter sent to him by Ya’acov Brosh, Consul-General of Israel in Toronto was put in his campaign literature allegedly without permission. [1] Brosh worried that the letter would be misconstrued as political interference. The Consul-General did give permission to "circulate" the letter but insisted that it was not intended to be any kind of endorsement. The letter was sent to Dryden thanking him for his participation in a ceremony commemorating the 10th anniversary of the assassination of former Israel Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.

While Dryden's fundraising efforts have left him well behind the top tier of leadership contenders (Michael Ignatieff, Gerard Kennedy, Stephane Dion and Bob Rae) a recent poll [2]found that Dryden's potential pool of support exceeded that of his opponents. Despite initially being a very high profile candidate for leadership, his organizational efforts have been disappointing, placing him in the bottom rank of remaining candidates. After gaining less than 5% of first round ballots for the Liberal leadership, Dryden is one of four of eight remaining candidates that have been written off by the media as unlikely to win the Liberal leadership.
