Description

This is a hockey fan's must-have: the definitive, official, color-illustrated history of the NHL, fully revised and updated to include the 2017-18 season

On a chilly day in 1917, the National Hockey League was formed, and in the years since, it has been a mainstay of American sports. This new edition of The Official Illustrated NHL History is fully revised and updated to include NHL's centennial celebrations in 2017-18 as well as a special section at the back containing 15 tear-out images. This authoritative and comprehensive reference delves deep into the game, covering every player, event, and issue of importance, from the NHL's inception to the present day. Written by an acknowledged authority on hockey, every page is a visually exciting and information-packed celebration of the sport.
