about

From how the puck was invented to players’ superstitions to the secret science of passing, How Hockey Works is the ultimate behind-the-scenes look at the game of hockey. Whether readers have their sights set on playing in the big leagues themselves or just want the inside scoop on all the science behind this popular game, this How Sports Work series title has something for everyone. Text that is as exciting to read as the sport is to play looks at the properties of ice and the precise science of maintaining skating surfaces; the science of speedy, powerful skating; the puck, stick, mask, and other equipment; the science of explosive moves (the slapshot) and maximizing a player’s chance of scoring; and the science of fitness and healing injuries. Special "Legends of the Game" pages introduce readers to players like Bobby Orr and Wayne Gretzky, while a "Rules and Regs" section and glossary at the back of the book are jam-packed with all the terms and information to make any reader an expert at the basics of the game.
