Book of the Month: The NHL 100 Years in Pictures & Stories


“For anyone who is an NHL fan, this is a treasure trove of history in pictures and stories.”

— review (Top 1000 Reviewer)

Our book of the month for February 2018 is the Globe & Mail Bestseller The NHL 100 Years in Pictures & Stories by veteran sportswriter Bob Duff and Sportsnet Magazine’s Ryan Dixon.

Filled with over 200 images and over 100 stories about the defining moments of NHL history, this book is the ultimate guide to the NHL’s centennial celebrations and has quickly become one of the top 20 best selling hockey books in Canada.

Featuring major events and more obscure trivia, this book showcases the very best of the first 100 years of the NHL and is a must-have for any NHL lover’s book collection.

The NHL 100 Years in Pictures & Stories captures the most extraordinary players and events from the league’s hundred-year history, including the birth of the NHL, game-changing new rules such as allowing goalies to wear masks, and the NHL’s first black and female players.

As February is Hockey is For Everyone Month, we’re linking up with the creators of Pride Tape for our Book of the Month giveaway. One lucky reader will win a copy of The NHL 100 Years in Pictures & Stories plus two rolls of Pride Tape.



About Pride Tape:

Debuted in 2016 at the Edmonton Oilers annual skills competition, Pride Tape was devised as a badge of support for young LGBTQ players from teammates, coaches, parents, and professional hockey players. The goal of the project is to make hockey a more inclusive sport for players and fans of every race, gender, age, sexual orientation, ability level, and socio-economic background.

Sales of Pride Tape support LGBTQ youth outreach initiatives such as You Can Play — a social activism campaign dedicated to removing homophobia from sports — and the Institute for Sexual Minority Studies and Services.
