Reflections On A Hockey Season

The National Hockey League and the National Hockey League Players' Association don't always work well together. But they, in tandem with Getty Images and Greystone Books, did an amazing job on the new book release Reflections on a Hockey Season: The 2007 NHL Year in Photographs. The book captures the highlights of the 2006-07 NHL season, headlining Vincent Lecavalier, Roberto Luongo, Martin Brodeur, Alexander Ovechkin and of course Sidney Crosby.

The 150 photographs are nothing short of spectacular, although the lack of captions is puzzling. Actually I should correct that. Photo captions and credits are in the very back of the book as opposed to with each photo. On one hand that allows for the pictures to truly say 1000 words, but the lack of captions is a common complaint of the non-hardcore hockey fans I've shown the book to.

The book also is fund raising endeavor for the NHL/NHLPA joint initiative Hockey Fights Cancer, now in its 10th year. Part of the proceeds of this beautiful book will be donated to the fight against cancer.

This book is truly worth displaying on your coffee table. And the best part is the media release says the publication is "the first of an annual visual celebration." Hockey fans rejoice - more high quality photo books like this one are in our future.
