The Official NHL Hockey Treasures

Here's an official press release from the NHL about a new and well-kept secret hockey book:

NEW YORK (October 29, 2008)– The National Hockey League (NHL) and Carlton Books have teamed up to release The Official NHL Hockey Treasures, a special edition book created by Toronto author Dan Diamond in association with the Hockey Hall of Fame. The book tells the rich and fascinating history of hockey through hundreds of photographs and an exhaustively researched and lucid text.

The Official Treasures of NHL Hockey explores the origin and evolution of hockey, with particular attention to the professional game in North America, the players, legendary match-ups and illustrious teams. Available now, this collectible book includes a stunning assortment of removable facsimiles of hockey memorabilia selected by the curators of the Hockey Hall of Fame.

The Official Treasures of NHL Hockey includes:
· More than 200 images collected from hockey’s renowned past
· 30 removable items of facsimile memorabilia, including a souvenir program from the 1925 Stanley Cup Final, the Montreal Canadiens’ 1933-34 pocket schedule, and a Ronald Reagan thank you letter to former NHL President John Ziegler
· Over 60 pages of stories and historical facts from the game of hockey

“It's almost a cliché to describe the history of the National Hockey League as colorful, but this book proves this to be the case,” said Dan Diamond, author of The Official NHL Hockey Treasures. “It's packed with information, images and special inserts that display NHL hockey in all its glory.”

The Official Treasures of NHL Hockey is now available at all book stores across the United States and Canada, as well as at NHL Powered by Reebok Store in New York City, and the NHL’s official online store, Shop.NHL.com.

You can buy the book at Amazon.ca, Chapters, or Amazon.com
