Readers embark on a journey through time to see how hockey grew up. Using in-game action photography and fun illustrations, experts show kids how the gear, players, strategy, and fans have changed since the NHL dropped the first puck in 1917. Full color.

Book Synopsis

Hockey: Then to WOW! shows readers how the cool sport has evolved from the early days of its 19th century origins to the game as it is today. Using NHL action photographs, illustrations, stories, and trivia, the book is a journey through time both for hockey fans and those new to the game. Kids will learn how basic equipment has changed from a ball to a puck and how the evolution of game strategy has transformed the sport, players, and equipment. Players throughout history are stacked up against each other in every position so fans can dream up the perfect fantasy team with Wayne Gretzky playing alongside Patrick Roy and Stan Mikita. A fun-filled section of the book explores everything fan culture--from the best ice rinks, to the iconic hockey sweater and the hockey haircut along with key aspects of the toughest sport around.
