What People are Saying About This

Morris Mott

'Clearly written and impressively researched, The Lords of the Rinks adds significantly to our knowledge of the early history of pro hockey and the National Hockey League. This is one of the most important books in Canadian sports history.'

Frank Mahovlich

'Lords of the Rinks is a great book for any hockey historian, a superb contribution to the hockey world, and a very interesting read for any hockey fan who wants to know more about the beginnings of the game.'

Bruce Kidd

'With Lords of the Rinks, John Chi-Kit Wong has uncovered a wealth of hitherto unexamined records and correspondence to re-examine the beginnings of professional hockey. His thoughtful analysis raises provocative questions about the rise and consolidation of the National Hockey League.'
