Product Overview

The first indoor hockey match took place in 1875--and since that fateful date, the sport has occupied a central place in North American life. Trace hockey's changes from its amateur days to the moment when pros skated on artificial ice to the exciting Canada-Russia summit series. Meet hockey's greats and villains, the glory teams, the powerful owners; and the tragic players, like superstar Howie Morenz, dead at 35. You will feel the power of this poetic, violent, and gloriously improvisational sport.
