The September He Remembers

Josef Kompalla and the 1972 Summit Series

ByCedric Bolz

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
The Summit Series, a best-on-best hockey tournament played between the former-Soviet and Canadian men’s teams, occupies an outsized role in the Canadian sporting imagination. The September He Remembers: Josef Kompalla and the 1972 Summit Series reframes this famous Series in sport history through the story, experiences, and memories of Josef Kompalla, a German referee who played a key role in the events as one of the few esteemed officials selected to officiate during the Series. Given Kompalla’s important place in the history of the Summit Series, one of the most mythologized and celebrated tournaments in Canadian sport history, it should come as a surprise that his perspective on the events has not been previously documented. In this book, Bolz seeks to rectify this longstanding oversight through intrepid archival creation and analysis, as well as previously-untold stories from Kompalla himself. Although Kompalla’s role in the Summit Series has been largely omitted or obfuscated for the past half century, The September He Remembers is finally the first step in correcting a major historical oversight and adding a new chapter in the Summit Series’ growing legacy.
