A moment of hockey history for every day of the year!

A few seconds can make a game, even a season, but fans who don't know the history of pro hockey, its teams, and their players are only seeing the tip of the iceberg. Mike Commito (The Athletic, Sportsnet, VICE Sports) marks every day of the year with a great moment in hockey, and shows how today's game is part of a living history going back to the earliest days of the sport.

We all know Bobby Orr was one of the greatest of all time, but understanding how he changed the role of defenseman tells you volumes about today's players, too. Gretzky diehards might note the anniversary of The Great One's first professional training camp (September 16, 1978) but not know how it got him started on his pro career before he was even old enough for the NHL. From the National Hockey League's first games in 1917 to the time when Boston Bruins players were physically carried off the ice by the Montreal Canadiens, Hockey 365 has something for everyone, and is sure to give you a better appreciation for the sport we all love.
Mike Commito is a hockey historian and writer. His work has appeared in Sports Illustrated, the Hockey News, VICE Sports, Sportsnet, and the Athletic. Prior to becoming a hockey writer, Mike completed a Ph.D. in Canadian history from McMaster University. He lives in Sudbury, Ontario.
