"Splended is the Sun
The 5,000 Year History of Hockey"

Is also a very good book.

The authors did years of extensive research into the origins and evolution of hockey.

Tracing back to Mesopotamia and some of the oldest known civilizations.

The cover looks amateur. But the content is very good. They have ancient cave paintings of people playing hockey-eque games and such.

Its very interesting.

Here's a link to that book. This is on my Blackberry, so it might not work.

Open Net by George Plimpton. Easily. Mostly because he was a fine writer and because it allows the fan to feel like they were involved in the NHL.

By the way, off-topic, by far my favorite sports book ever was The Sweet Science, by AJ Liebling. It's a collection of articles about boxing that were printed in The New Yorker. If you like boxing, and you haven't read it, you're missing something special.

I'm a writer, and he is one guy I downright envy for his talent.

"Thin Ice" by Larry Sloman.

It's super rare, so you'll have to find a book dealer on Amazon.com

Laugh out loud moments throughout, really fun read.

Here's another vote for Ken Dryden's "The Game".
I've read it 3 times and plan to go back for a 4th.

Glad to see some of the other suggestions in this thread, so now I know what else to get. Cheers, all.

If anyone is even remotely a fan of the rough stuff, and the guys that handle that aspect of the game then "The Code" is an absolute must. Written by Ross Bernstien and has some great insight on fighting in the game of hockey. Forward by Tony Twist, some classic...Truly classic Nick Fotiu info in there.
