PHOTOS: Former Edmonton Oiler “Cujo” Book Signing

Hundreds of fans lined up to meet former Edmonton Oiler goalie Curtis “Cujo” Joseph, who signed copies of his new book “Cujo: The Untold Story of My Life on and Off the Ice” at the south Edmonton Costco store on Saturday November 10, 2018.

Curtis Joseph, known affectionately to hockey fans around the world as Cujo, was an unlikely NHL superstar. The boy from Keswick, Ontario, didn’t put on a pair of skates until most kids his age were already far along in organized hockey, and he was passed over by every team in the NHL draft. Despite an unorthodox start, he would go on to play eighteen seasons with the St. Louis Blues, Edmonton Oilers, Toronto Maple Leafs, Detroit Red Wings, Phoenix Coyotes and Calgary Flames; be ranked among the all-time greats in several key categories; and win an Olympic gold medal while representing Canada. Joseph is a legend in Toronto, where his fandom rivals that of other beloved Leaf greats, and he’s widely thought of as one of the best goalies of all time.
