This new edition of The Official NHL Hockey Treasures--fully authorized and produced in partnership with the National Hockey League and the Hockey Hall of Fame--scores a veritable hat trick. Not only does it relate the sport's colorful history through hundreds of photos and a meticulously researched text exploring the greatest teams, immortal players, and most famous games. Not only has it been updated to include the 2009-10 and 2010-11 seasons, plus the dramatic 2010 Winter Olympic Games tournament. What really makes this book a must-have for every fan is the awe-inspiring collection of 30 interactive facsimiles of Hall-of-Fame-quality memorabilia ingeniously inserted into its pages, including 90-year-old newspaper reports from the NHL's first games, letters from the president of the NHL, player contracts--including Gordie Howe's deal to play with his two sons on the Hartford Whalers--collectible hockey cards, and much, much more!
