Stanley Cup: 120 Years of Hockey Supremacy is the definitive book on the history of the Stanley Cup and the championship teams that have won it.

In honor of the 120th anniversary of the first winner of the Stanley Cup, author Eric Zweig has collected the details of every cup winner from 1893 to present. Hockey fans can chart the course of hockey history and revisit the dynasties and Cinderella stories of each and every decade. Zweig presents each Stanley Cup winner in an illustrated two-page spread, detailing playoff brackets, club rosters and playoff statistics, as well as providing stories and sidebars outlining the incredible journey each team took to achieve hockey supremacy.

Presented between seasons are highlights of some of hockey's best and most controversial playoff moments, such as Brett Hull's "no goal" in the 1999 final or Bobby Baun's overtime winning goal for the 1964 Stanley Cup.

Also included in this expansive volume are personal stories of some of the NHL's best playoff games as recounted by Hockey Hall of Fame legends Phil Esposito, Dave Keon and Ken Dryden, to name a few. Complete with a foreword by Phil Pritchard, the Keeper of the Stanley Cup, and packed with information and over 200 photographs, Stanley Cup is a must have for any hockey fan.

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.
