Item Details

The team of Dan Hamilton and Mike Leonetti is well known to hockey fans. In the last five years their calendar, The Hockey Year, has been a bestseller every year. This unique book contains biographies and action photography of 70 of the top players in the National Hockey League, with their career statistics up-to-date through the 1998-1999 season. Organized by seven "positions" or player roles, this is a ready reference for the millions of hockey fans across North America: 1. The Masked Marvels: the very best modern goaltenders including Patrick Roy, Martin Brodeur and Dominik "The Dominator" Hasek. 2. The Rear Guard: The "stay-at-home" defensive specialists - big, mobile and brutal - who clear the slot in front of the net: Chris Chelios, Scott Stevens, Sylvain Lefebvre and others. 3. The Blue Line Attack: Brian Leetch, Paul Coffey and Rob Blake lead the rush past the blue line. 4. The Power Forwards: Mark Messier, Eric Lindros, Brendan Shanahan and others are all big, powerful, fast and talented. 5. The Playmakers: The quarterbacks of hockey led by Wayne Gretzky, Adam Oates, Doug Gilmour and Steve Yzerman. 6. The Snipers: Jaromir Jagr, John LeClair, Pavel Bure and others may be hockey's most exciting stars - fast and elusive with deadly accurate shots. 7. The Hitmen: Tie Domi, Donald Brashear and Darren McCarty dominate the enforcer team. 8. The Young Guns: These are the up-and-coming superstars of tomorrow including Jeff Friesen and Saku Koivu.
