Hockey Hall of Fame True Stories

The Hockey Hall of Fame is full of the best to ever hit the ice. But the path to hockey greatness is not all jaw-dropping saves and game-winning goals. In Hockey Hall of Fame True Stories, hockey historian and writer Eric Zweig shares exciting tales and trivia even the most dedicated puck head might not know. This book is overflowing with behind the scenes yarns of some of history's greatest scoring sprees and winning seasons, as well as thrilling accounts of the off-ice curiosities, tragedies and heroics.

Just a few of the stories featured in this fully illustrated volume are:

  • the Guy Lafleur kidnapping plot
  • the gambling scandals of Harry Cameron and Babe Pratt
  • Newsy Lalonde's heroic home rescue
  • the 1972 Montreal Canadien's motel fire
  • the time Cy Denneny fell down a well.
  • Hockey Hall of Fame True Stories is for the fans who want to take a deeper look at the lives of the players they idolize. You know the stars, the scores, and the stats. But do you know the stories?
