Art Ross
The first authorized biography of Art Ross, Hockey Hall of Famer, NHL founding father, and long-time member of the Boston Bruins. Though he last played the game nearly one hundred years ago, Art Ross remains connected with the greatest stars in hockey. Gordie Howe, Bobby Orr, Wayne Gretzky, and Sidney Crosby have all won the award that bears his name, the trophy given annually to the NHL’s top scorer. Ross himself managed just one goal during his NHL career; however, in the dozen years leading up to the formation of the NHL in 1917, he was one of the biggest stars in the game. After his playing career ended, Ross became one of the founding fathers of the Boston Bruins, holding the positions of coach, general manager, and vice president. He was one of the men most responsible for making the NHL a success in the United States, and was integral to the modernization of hockey. All these accomplishments led to him being one of the first players inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. Hockey historian Eric Zweig brings to life the early days of hockey. From the mining towns of Northern Ontario to the hallowed halls of Boston Garden, Art Ross was one of the biggest names in hockey over his six decades in the game.

Hockey's Glory Days

Hockey's Glory Days
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. Intense rivalries brewed, as the game, the rink it was played on, and the equipment players wore evolved. Offenses increased as the curved stick and the booming "slap shot" became all the rage. Hockey's Glory Days relives these exciting decades, when the Montreal Canadiens made 10 consecutive appearances in the Stanley Cup finals, winning the last five, and when the Chicago Blackhawks and Toronto Maple Leafs dominated the '60s. The book features more than 126 player and team photos, plus individual and team statistics for every season from 1949-50 to 1968-69. Hockey's best forwards, goaltenders, and defensemen are profiled. The authors—experts in their field—include photographs and statistics of greats the likes of Gordie Howe, Bobby Hull, Maurice "Rocket" Richard, Bobby Orr, Phil Esposito, and Jacques Plante. Hockey's Glory Days even includes the "best" and "worst" statistics and trivia from this era.
