CHICAGO (WLS) -- Former Blackhawks player Eddie Olczyk joined ABC7 Chicago to talk about his new book and signing events.

He was a former Blackhawks player who went on to play in the Olympics, coach in the NHL and eventually became an announcer for the sport. Now Eddie Olczyk is adding author to his titles.

His new book is called, "Eddie Olczyk: Beating the Odds in Hockey and in Life."
