Canada's Olympic Hockey History 1920-2010Book - 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.
