Description

Celebrate the centenary of the National Hockey League with this fully revised and updated edition of The Official NHL Hockey Treasures. Now in a brand-new format
This new edition of The Official NHL Hockey Treasures --which includes the 2015-16 Stanley Cup won by the Pittsburgh Penguins--tells the fascinating story of the sport through hundreds of photographs and an exhaustively researched text. As always, it covers hockey's origins and evolution, as well as the great players and memorable games. But this title really scores with its awe-inspiring collection of 30 interactive facsimiles of hockey memorabilia. The removable items include 90-year-old newspaper articles about the NHL's first games, letters from the President of the NHL, player contracts--including Gordie Howe's deal to play with his two sons on the Hartford Whalers--collectible hockey cards, and much more. Hockey fans will treasure this forever.
