Hockey's Top 100: The Game's Greatest Records

Which of hockey's records are the most amazing?

Wayne Gretzky's 2857 career points? Maybe #99's 50 goals in 39 games? Goalie Glenn Hall's 501 consecutive games played (without a mask!)? Bill Mosienko's 21 second hat trick? Montreal's 5 consecutive Stanley Cup championships?

Veteran hockey writers Don Weekes and Kerry Banks team up to rank all of hockey's greatest achievements in giving us Hockey's Top 100: The Game's Greatest Records, published by Greystone Books.

Weekes is a hockey trivia expert if there ever was one. He has written 17 books on hockey trivia and unusual NHL records. Banks is an award-winning magazine journalist and author, publishing 15 sports titles. Together they combine forces, evaluating hockey history to rank hockey's great milestones according to historical importance, degree of dominance, uniqueness and longevity.

The 160 page paperback book is loaded with photographs, some famous, some unique, all amazing. It is well written and sure strike up intermission conversation during a Saturday night hockey game.

The $12 book is a small and cute at dimensions of 6" x 6.75", making it a perfect stocking stuffer for the avid hockey fan on your shopping list.

If this book is successful I have to assume this is intended to be the beginning of a series of books under the Hockey's Top 100 banner. It will be interesting to see what Weekes and Banks bring us next.
