When did the tradition of engraving winners' names on
the Stanley Cup start? Which six brothers collectively
played in more than 5,000 NHL games?
Answers to these questions and many more can be found
in H is for Hockey: An NHL Alumni Alphabet.
Formed in 1999, the National Hockey League Alumni
Association is affectionately known as "Hockey's Greatest
Family" for good reason. Members of the NHL Alumni are
considered hockey ambassadors, supporting the game and
its history through many charitable causes and programs.
Written by one of the game's foremost historians, this
book pays tribute to them and the sport they love.
Adding a personal touch are the memorable quotes
sprinkled throughout the text. When 17-year-old Sidney
Crosby was drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2005, he
said, "This is amazing. It's been a lot of hard work and a
lot of sacrifices. It's unbelievable!"
