"Born and raised in Montreal, Quebec, author and hockey enthusiast Dave Stubbs has been a newspaper sports writer since 1976, with stories syndicated coast-to-coast. He was inspired to become a writer by his Grade 10 English teacher at John Rennie High School in Pointe Claire, who until a few years ago was still marking up Dave's columns and returning them to him. Dave has freelanced extensively for magazines, including TIME, and was a consultant for two television screenplays. A great deal of his work, including contributions to Remembering Guy Lafleur and Canadiens Legends: Montreal's Hockey Heroes, has focused on the history of hockey and the legends of the game. Dave is a sports columnist for the Montreal Gazette."

Our Game: The History of Hockey in Canada is the most comprehensive book ever written for young readers about the history of hockey, specifically from a Canadian perspective. The author provides a play-by-play of our national sport's evolution over three centuries, from the first publicly played game through the recent NHL lock-out. Along with essential information about rules, gear, and stats, readers will learn about hockey's most unforgettable moments and most talented stars. Little-known facts, amazing photographs (many of which have never been published in a book before), and expertly researched history make this a must-have for every Canadian hockey fan!
