Editorial Reviews

Zweig has done a magnificent job documenting in a handsome coffee table giant the years since 1892 when Lord Stanley donated the original cup to be awarded as a challenge trophy. Heavily illustrated, chock-full of statistics and complete with fascinating sidebars, Stanley Cup is arranged from the most recent victory by the Los Angeles Kings to that day in February 1893 when the Montreal hockey club won the first annual match. In between those dates, Zweig packs enough full-colour photographs, biographies and Cup trivia to last until some agreement is reached in the NHL.
