From the Author

The game has endured since the days before there was the internet, television and even radio, through two world wars, a deadly flu and the Great Depression. In 1994, the elected leaders of our country finally recognized what everyone had known for a long time: that hockey is Canada. With the National Sports of Canada Act, hockey was acknowledged by Parliament as this nation’s official winter sport. Like us, our government sees that hockey is a thread that runs from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific, a sport that links us as Canadians. The Act does make us think about a great game and the many people who have made it so. It reminds us of street hockey and the Stanley Cup, of heroes the game has known for more than 100 years. It leads us back to the days of long ago, to the recollections of our parents and grand-parents, and into our libraries to discover more. The National Sports of Canada Act reminds us of hockey’s place in our culture and our hearts. And because the game is woven into so much of our culture, studying the history of hockey is, in many ways, studying the history of Canada — with a glorious past and a very exciting future, just like the country it calls home. This is the story of hockey in Canada.
