Keltie Thomas introduces young readers to the wild side of professional hockey, past and present, in this entertaining and informative book. Illustrated with photographs and humorous drawings, Inside Hockey! recounts the facts, adventures, and rare anecdotes that continue to make hockey one of North America’s most popular sports. It's all here ? the stories about the superstars (male and female), the rules that changed the game, and the dazzling science behind the sport. Thomas profiles such unforgettable characters as the player who would rather fight than score, a goalie who sewed an elastic mesh net between his legs to catch the puck, and the guy who talked to the goalposts like they were old friends. Special categories include Legends on Ice, Strange but True, and Science at Play. This is the perfect trivia contest book, too, with the stories behind the greatest goal scorers, crazy goalies, practical jokers and hijinks, superstitions, the most ferocious fights, players overcoming obstacles, and the enduring obsession with that Cup called Stanley.

I thought this book was the best Silverbirch book ever. I liked when the Canadians placed a loonie inside the middle of the rink and everybody thought that made them win the gold medal.
