Stories from The Hockey News & Collectibles from the Hockey Hall of Fame Jason Kay (Editor) & Craig Campbell (Curator) What a dream team! The authors of The Hockey News, the authoritative voice of hockey since 1947, join the curators of the Hockey Hall of Fame, keepers of the greatest collection of hockey artifacts in the world, to chronicle the history of our Game in the NHL era, year by year. These stories are told by some of the best hockey historians alive today (like Brian Costello, Stan Fischler, Bob Duff, and Ken Campbell) and by the best journalists to pound the hockey beat yesterday ( like Elmer Ferguson reporting on the Rocket Richard Riot and Jim Proudfoot breaking the story on Johnny Bower's real age). Every hockey fanatic, old and young, will want to see George Vezina's dilapidated skates, Joe Hall's controversial contract, Eddie Shore's helmet (worn after he checked Ace Bailey and fractured his skull), Howie Morenz's crutches (used in the hospital before he died soon after breaking his leg), Gordie Howe's gloves (thrown on the ice as he squared off with Lou Fontinato), the $1 million dollar check written by Chicago owner James Norris to the Toronto Maple Leafs for Frank Mahovlich's contract, Wayne Gretskys' wedding invitation, and Zdeno Chara's size 16 skates, the largest ever worn in the NHL. Plus more sweaters, goalie masks, pucks, trophies, rings, and documents than you can shake a stick at.
