VOYA - Mary B. McCarthy
This fall as the National Hockey League season begins, it will be led by the back-to-back Stanley Cup Champion Detroit Red Wings. While ice hockey developed in Canada, U.S. players have been refining their skills and adding to the game. On each team, including the latest expansion, players born and trained in the United States will make significant contributions. Not only is hockey gaining popularity in the United States, U.S. players are also shaping the future of the game. Hockey's history, individual and team achievements, and the rising stars of women's hockey are all covered here. First-time author Hubbard has a fan's approach and enthusiasm for the ice sport. Fischler, the editor and co-author, has written more than seventy hockey-related books. Together they have effectively and enjoyably showcased the individuals, development, and future of ice hockey in the United States. The fast-paced text, frequent photos, and statistics tables will keep readers engrossed. This is not the most scholarly history of the game, but it will certainly captivate the game's fans. Photos. Charts. Appendix. VOYA Codes: 3Q 2P J S (Readable without serious defects, For the YA with a special interest in the subject, Junior High-defined as grades 7 to 9 and Senior High-defined as grades 10 to 12).
