Description

The Hockey Hall of Fame is full of the best to ever hit the ice. But the path to hockey greatness is not all jaw-dropping saves and game-winning goals. In Hockey Hall of Fame True Stories, hockey historian and writer Eric Zweig shares exciting tales and trivia even the most dedicated puck head might not know. This book is overflowing with behind the scenes yarns of some of history's greatest scoring sprees and winning seasons, as well as thrilling accounts of the off-ice curiosities, tragedies and heroics.

Just a few of the curious, bizarre or outrageous tales featured in this fully illustrated volume are:

  • The 1976 plot to kidnap Guy Lafleur
  • Extreme scoring outputs, like Darryl Sittler's 10-point performance and Frank McGee's 14-goal Stanley Cup outing
  • The time Cy Denneny fell down a well
  • The fastest hat tricks ever recorded by Bill Moisenko and Jean Beliveau
  • Hockey Hall of Famers' skills in other sports, like Gordie Howe's workouts with the Detroit Tigers and Art Ross's prowess on the football field
  • Tales of hockey players during WWI and WWII
  • The origins of the greatest nicknames
  • And many, many more!

Hockey Hall of Fame True Stories is for the fans who want to take a deeper look at the lives of the players they idolize. You know the stars, the scores and the stats. But do you know these stories?
