Book Description

Oct. 27 2009

In 1920, in Antwerp, Belgium, hockey made its Olympic
debut. Canada skated away with the gold in that series, and
has done so six more times in the nearly ninety years since.
In?Canada`s Olympic Hockey History?bestselling author Andrew
Podnieks collaborating with Hockey Canada offers a comprehensive,
fascinating look at almost a century of this country’s
Olympic hockey history, including both the men’s and
women’s teams.

Moving chronologically from those 1920 games through
Canada’s disappointing performance in Turin’s 2006 games,
Podnieks has compiled a treasure-trove of facts and figures
on everything from team players, uniforms and rules, to
travel conditions, opponents, and final standings. Complete
with extensive archival photography from both the Hockey
Hall of Fame and Hockey Canada, as well as personal
accounts from players past and present,?Canada`s Olympic Hockey History is?a must read heading into the 2010 Vancouver games.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good overview Aug. 31 2011
The author covered the teams in good detail but his analysis of issues in international hockey show a very pro nhl slant. Loved the colour prints of all the olympic jerseys but 1960 is missing for some reason.
