Nobody gives you more hard-hitting facts than The Hockey News Hockey Almanac 1999 Visible Ink and The Hockey News (regarded as the bible of hockey for more than half a century) have teamed up to publish this first annual edition of The Hockey News Hockey Almanac 1999. This new reference replaces and expands the highly successful Inside Sports Hockey, the book that Don Cherry of "Hockey Night in Canada" declared to be "All the information you'll ever need on hockey."
The Almanac continues to offer unprecedented coverage of the fastest game in town. This latest edition updates the complete, all-time NHL Player Register and adds a new Coach Register and a WHA Player Register. Plus, more facts and features that every hockey fan will appreciate:
· A colorful summary of the 1997-98 season, highlighted by the Detroit Red Wings' back-to-back Stanley Cup championship and the emotional return of Vladimir Konstantinov · An enhanced player register that now includes complete playoff statistics and goalie won-lost records · Brand new biographies on 24 of the Top 50 players of all-time, as ranked by The Hockey News · A new chapter on women's hockey, with extensive coverage of the 1998 Olympic games in Naganoan ¾ an event that drew tens of thousands of new fans to the sport · A new chapter on Hockey's All-Time Bad Boys. Not just the fighters, but the agitators and the instigators who keep the game lively and give their team an edge ¾ especially during playoff time. · More than 325 photos
