Who? What? When? Where? Why? How? If you have ever had a question about a hockey issue, be it a player, a team, rink, date or event, you will find the answer in this revised, updated and expanded edition of NHL: The Official Illustrated History. The story of hockey, from its earliest days right through to the 2018 Stanley Cup Final, is described in fine detail and complemented by dozens of biographies and hundreds of photographs.

Written by five leading authorities on the game, and supported by a wealth of stunning photography from the NHL archives, you'll find every great team, player, coach and personality to leave their mark on the league inside. NHL: The Official Illustrated History is a celebration of all that has made the sport what it is today—the unforgettable characters, the defining moments and the spectacular competition.
