For 25 years prior to expansion in 1967, big-league pro hockey consisted of only six teams and about 120 players. A document called the "C-Form," signed by young, often poor, Canadian boys, could bind a player to one franchise for life, thus insuring a team"s future.

Book Summary:

Technically it was a minor league, but for hockey fans west of the Mississippi, the Western Hockey League provided major-league entertainment for over 25 years. The WHL was a determined and ambitious professional league, with some 22 teams based in major American and Canadian cities. Known as the Pacific Coast Hockey League prior to 1952, the WHL aspired to establish itself as North America's second major league, a western counterpart to the early eastern Canada-based National Hockey League. But it never quite managed to make the jump to the majors. Ice Warriors is a play-by-play history of the Western Hockey League, recalling the league's beginnings as the Pacific Coast League, how it came to rival the NHL and what led to its disbanding in 1974. By interviewing former players, coaches and fans, and examining statistical records, Jon C. Stott captures the WHL's glory days and pays tribute to a time when hockey was played with heart.

Book Summary:

The Shamrock Tavern is a working-class bar, a place where the blue-collar regulars would gather for a pint or two on their way home from work. But once hockey season began, Saturday would become the night to be at the Shamrock, to watch the Hockey Night in Canada, to cheer the home team, to share the comaraderie of the common man. The Shamrock's best days are behind her when Tim Whittaker stumbles in from the cold November night. Once, when he was a boy, he had been a dedicated hockey fan. All that ended however with the death of his father, with whom he had shared the game. But this night, rather than spend another Saturday evening alone, he decides to stay awhile and watch the game on the TV behind the bar. Eddie Ross spent seventeen seasons as a minor league goaltender, toiling in relative obscurity in towns like Omaha and Toledo. After his career comes to an end, Eddie returns home to Toronto where he discovered the Shamrock, a place that would be his refuge, its regulars his family, for the better part of the next forty years. Ruth Callaghan inherited the Shamrock from her parents. Now she is faced with the reality that it is failing as a business. When a developer makes her an offer too good to be true, she must face the hardest decision of her life: Does she sell the tavern and give up the only life she has ever known or does she continue to fight a losing battle and take whatever comes? Glory Days tells the story of how these three individuals come together to reawaken one's love of the game, another's pride in his past and gives the third the courage to break free. Rich in nostalgia and character, the book is a must-read for any hockey fan and a compelling story of human compassion for everyone.

Scotty Bowman is renowned as the best coach in hockey history, and one of the greatest coaches in all of sports. He won more games and more Stanley Cups than anyone else. Remarkably, he coached at the very top for more than four decades with twenty-nine years between his first and last Cup wins. And he's seen more than anyone in hockey. With his precious standing room pass to the Montreal Forum, he saw 'Rocket' Richard play at his peak every Saturday night. He saw Gordie Howe as a seventeen-year-old just starting out. He scouted Bobby Orr as a thirteen-year-old in Parry Sound, Ontario. He coached Guy Lafleur and Mario Lemieux. He coached against Wayne Gretzky. For the past decade, as an advisor for the Chicago Blackhawks, he has watched Sidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin, and Connor McDavid. He has seen it all up close. Ken Dryden was a Hall-of-Fame goaltender with the Montreal Canadiens. His critically acclaimed and bestselling books have shaped the way we read and think about hockey. Now

Book Summary:

For nearly 40 years, Roy MacGregor has brought our national sport alive on the pages of Canada's newspapers and magazines, and now the best of this writing is available in a volume that's a must-read for any hockey fan. He covers a list of hockey legends--players like Borje Salming, Jean Beliveau, Bobby Clarke--and legends in the making--Sidney Crosby, Alexander Ovechkin, the Sedin twins. While many of their stories play out on the ice, some of the most compelling take place away from it--Ted Nolan's struggle for acceptance, Swift Current's remarkable rise, the many tribulations of Bob Gainey and Guy Lafleur. Who could offer a better perspective on the game than a writer who, playing as a youngster, had to face an onrushing phenom from Parry Sound named Bobby Orr? When it comes to hockey, Roy MacGregor has seen (and in some cases, done) it all; in Wayne Gretzky's Ghost, with newly added updates and reflections on each article, he shares these and many other highlights from his storied career.

Book Summary:

Renowned sportswriter Stephen Brunt reveals how "the Great One," who was bought and sold more than once, decided that the comfortable Canadian city where hockey ruled couldn't compete with the slushy ice of a California franchise. Bobby Orr's career ended prematurely, with tears. Wayne Gretzky's tears, unlike Orr's, announced not an ending but another beginning. Gretzky's Edmonton Oilers had four Stanley Cup victories, but Gretzky may then have had other goals in mind. Beginning with his dad, Walter, and continuing with Nelson Skalbania, Peter Pocklington, Bruce McNall, Jerry Buss -- and with the CBC's Peter Gzowski as chronicler for the eager masses -- the enormity of Gretzky's talent attracted all sorts of people who were after a variety of vicarious thrills.
