This was a fun and quick book to read. I really enjoyed reading about the beginnings of hockey, the first nicknames, women hockey players, the best and worst goalies, the biggest fights, etc, etc. The author covered quite a lot. My only complaint is there isn't a lot of meat with the lists. Each item in the list is just a few sentences long. In some instances, I wanted more information. Oh well. I guess there are other resources for that. This is a great introduction to hockey, as well as a good bit of history for any hockey buff. Recommended. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 157488364X, Paperback)

The history of hockey is filled with the bizarre, the unexpected, and the hard to believe. Hockey's Most Wanted™ chronicles 700 of the most outrageous players, coaches, and owners in hockey history. In humorous detail, Floyd Conner describes hockey’s top-ten strange plays, inept players, bizarre nicknames, craziest fans, colorful characters, unlikely heroes, odious owners, worst coaches, beleaguered officials, most brutal fights, and more. Learn why Dave Reece was nicknamed “the Human Sieve,” and find out which goalie once gave up fifteen goals in a game. Meet the player who was whistled for a record sixty-seven penalty minutes in a single game and another who played in the National Hockey League for five years before scoring his first goal. Imagine scoring the winning goal in the seventh and deciding game of the Stanley Cup—for the opposing team—or how it felt to be the defenseman traded for a net. You can find all this and more in Hockey's Most Wanted™, a book that every hockey fan will enjoy.
