College ice hockey is one of the fastest, most entertaining sports on earth. Ann Arbor is home of the University of Michigan, the program that has won more collegiate hockey championships than any other. Step inside historic Yost Arena and you'll witness fast-paced end-to-end skating, heart-pounding body checks, and frozen rubber pucks shot at nearly 100 miles per hour. Yet in Ann Arbor, the action is not confined to the ice: The loud and passionate Wolverines fans truly become part of the action long before the first puck drops. Through creative chants and interaction with the Michigan Ice Hockey Pep Band, the crowd helps create the best, most imposing home ice atmosphere in the college game. Michigan's storied ice hockey program goes beyond the extensive list of premiere players and coaches that have worn the maize and blue---from the legendary Red Berenson to many of today's National Hockey League stars. From winning the first ever National Championship in collegiate ice hockey to playing before the largest crowd in hockey history to date (inside a football stadium!), the University of Michigan boasts a long and proud tradition of hockey excellence and excitement. Michigan Ice Hockeyis a fan's ultimate guide, telling the story of the program from its first, humble days of skating outdoors on the frozen Huron River, to today's competitions on the best rinks in the nation. It covers everything from leading scorers to tournament results to NHL player alumni. It's a love story for those conquering heroes on skates, the traditions and trivia that surround them, and the fans that drive them. And it's the story of a university, an alumni base, and an entire community with a passion for pucks. Greg Nelson is a professional writer and author ofM Is for Michigan.
