Overview

The Hockey News' latest book, The Biggest of Everything in Hockey is a mix of all things enormous, past and present, for fans of all ages. We showcase the biggest per category and offer a list of honorable mentions, leaving readers awestruck with the tales of the larger-than-life figures, events and oddities in hockey. Written by The Hockey News' stable of experts, along with some of the industry's top writers, the book features a variety of stories through detailed accounts and vivid first-hand recollections.

Bigger is always better. Or it's at least more fun to talk about. Instead of debating the best, The Biggest of Everything in Hockey discusses hockey's hugest: from the objective (biggest player) to the subjective (biggest ego). The book gives fans the facts (biggest crowd, stick, suspension) and also fuels debate (biggest mouth, draft bust, myth).

Chapters Include:
1. Biggest Mouth: the player whose yap never stayed shut
2. Biggest Bench Brawl: the donnybrook that caused the most
    chaos
3. Biggest Contract: the most dough handed out in a single deal
4. Biggest Ego: the player who knew there was no 'team' in 'I'
5. Biggest Player: hockey's all-time giant on blades
6. Biggest Hitter: he who had more big hits than The Beatles
7. Biggest Crowd: the largest assembly of hockey fans in one
    venue
8. Biggest Nose: the player whose schnoz size is the stuff of
    legend
