Overview

Millions cheer at live and televised games, but few fans have the opportunity to get under the helmets and behind the masks to meet hockey's greatest stars. STARFORCE HOCKEY tells the inside story of the greats who have spanned the decades, from future Hall of Famers-Ray Bourque, Mark Messier, Chris Chelios, Grant Fuhr, Patrick Roy, and Steve Yzerman-to the players whose stars are burning brightest now-superstar Jaromir Jagr, Eric Lindros, Curtis Joseph, Pavel Bure, Dominik Hasek, Brian Leetch, Teemu Selanne, Peter Forseberg, and Paul Kariya-to those whose stars are rising for the first time-the young and the talented Steve Kariya, the Sedin Twins, and Patrik Stefan.

Each player is profiled, with information about his interests, habits, superstitions, and unique skills. "Did you know?" boxes include relevant statistics for each player. Exciting photos capture the players' drive and talent on and off the ice. And telling quotes from insiders such as general managers, scouts, opponents, teammates, coaches, and journalists provide revealing insights. Perfect as a gift or a personal keepsake, STARFORCE HOCKEY is great for any hockey buff.
