about this item

Delving once more into the collection of Allan Stitt, author Greg Oliver digs up fascinating document after document to reveal much of the history of the National Hockey League, as well as the American Hockey League and the colorful World Hockey Association.See Henri Richard’s rookie contract, signed with Frank Selke on a calendar page, and Wayne Gretzky’s contract, inked at center ice at Edmonton’s Northlands Coliseum. Find out what it was like for general manager Lou Nanne to sign his own retirement papers and the challenges of going to arbitration with a player over a contract. And for an international flavor, there’s the paperwork from the Swedish Ice Hockey Federation that allowed Borje Salming and Inge Hammarström to play for the Maple Leafs. Expect the unexpected too, like Baseball Hall of Fame pitcher Fergie Jenkins’ contract to play for the St. Louis Blues.With dozens of interviews and meticulous research, Oliver brings dusty old documents to light and life again.
