Firefly Books Ltd
For the Love of Hockey appeals to hockey fans of all ages. The greatest hockey players of all time share vivid memories of the game they love, memories that are primarily joyful but occasionally heart-breaking -- the dramatic overtime goals, the record-breaking games, the team camaraderie, the devastating trades and the career-ending injuries. Thrilling full-color photographs enhance the personal stories of players from such hockey legends as "Rocket" Richard, Gordie Howe, Jean Beliveau, Bobby Orr and Wayne Gretzky to current stars Steve Yzerman, Mario Lemieux and Patrick Roy. Told in the players' own words, these stories are infused with the same skill, spirit, character and determination that carried each of these men to the heights of the National Hockey League and made hockey one of the most popular sports in the world.
A book to appeal to hockey fans of all ages: the greatest hockey players of all time share vivid memories of the game they love in their own words. The paper edition has been updated to reflect any new statistics.
