Overview

Rochester, New York, emerged courageously with its first professional hockey team in the fall of 1935: the Rochester Cardinals.

Finally, in 1956, thanks to local visionaries such as Sam Toth and Ed House, Rochester became home to the Americans. The "Amerks" began a legacy of greatness from their inception as a joint affiliate of the legendary Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs. This volume is a salute to those who have shaped Rochester�s hockey history for more than thirty-seven hundred games.
