Find out EVERYTHING there is to know about hockey!

Who are the "Original Six"? What are some of the most historic hockey games? What jobs are available in the hockey industry, other than being an NHL all-star?

This book will answer all your questions, and more! From the first game (with roots in Irish hurling and Scottish shinty) to the billion-dollar industry it is today - including the evolution of hockey equipment, the Stanley Cup, and every NHL team - fans will learn the complete A to Z of hockey.

Eric Zweig's love of sports and compiling facts about them started early: by the age of ten, he was already filling school notebooks with game reports and statistics. Eric has worked as a writer and producer for CBC Radio Sports and TSN SportsRadio. He lives in Owen Sound, Ontario, with his wife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Big Book of Hockey for Kids I bought this book for a 10 1/2 year-old hockey player and hockey fan for Christmas. He loved it so much that after opening it and looking through it, he sensitively placed it under the Christmas tree.
