Bestselling children's book author and illustrator Per-Henrik Gürth has created a colorful, lively tribute to hockey with this picture book for the youngest fans. The action-packed story follows a group of animals who take to the ice to play a rousing game of hockey. Highlighted on the pages in large type throughout the story are hockey vocabulary words and terms. The vocabulary ranges from the basics --- such as team, net, shot --- to more complex concepts --- face-off, line change, penalty --- and the author has cleverly used and defined each of them within the story. For example, on the two-page spread where the term power play appears, the illustration is of the two teams facing each other on the ice, five players on one side, four on the other, and the text reads, ?It's five against four --- a power play!? Every spread has at least one word or term, though some have more, and on two of the pages the words simply label things in the illustrations. This terrific book could be used three different ways, within language arts as well as physical education. The fun, dramatic story can stand alone as a great read, with pre-readers easily able to use the context of the simple artwork to interpret the language, while the highlighted words and terms offer wonderful vocabulary enhancement for beginning readers. And the content provides an excellent basic tutorial on how to play hockey, and on team sports in general.

Ever since legendary hockey broadcaster Foster Hewitt's "He shoots, he scores!" Canadian kids have been lacing up their skates, grabbing their hockey gear and heading out to the rink to see what they can do. Caraway Kim's quest in The Adventures of Caraway Kim ... Right Wing is to become the top goal scorer on his hockey team. He is highly motivated, skilled but not the rough and tumble kind of hockey player who dominates the ice. And, of course, there is such a player on his team - Bradley Rooks - a bigger, stronger, older rival who seems to dominate play and the puck and seems certain to take the crown. What Brandley Rooks doesn't know is that Kim is truly a student of the game and when the curved stick becomes the latest innovation in hockey, Kim adopts "the secret weapon" revolutionizing the game. The on-ice and off-ice action of boys is everything we have come to expect from a Truckey novel. The rivalries, humour, and dialogue ring as true as the sound of a puck off a goal post. And it's not just that Kim's curved stick gives him a advantage that allows him to compete with his tough and delinquent team-mate, Brad, it's his genuine love of the game that gives him the championship edge.

For readers of The Boys in the Boat, the remarkable story of the unlikely Canadian hockey team that clinched Olympic gold in 1948 The announcement was shocking—Canada, the birthplace of hockey, would not be sending a team to the 1948 Winter Olympics in Switzerland. Outraged, a Royal Canadian Air Force squadron leader, Sandy Watson, quickly assembled a team of air force hockey players who were “amateur enough” to complete under the Olympic guidelines. Sergeant Frank Boucher was recruited to coach the team and begin the cross-Canada search for players. Hubert Brooks, a decorated flying officer and serial escapist from POW camps, was another early recruit. Andy Gilpin joined from the RCAF base in Whitehorse, as did airmen from Quebec, the Maritimes and western Canada. And when their starting goalie, Dick Ball, didn’t pass a medical exam, Murray Dowey was called up from his job as a TTC driver and occasional practice goalie for the Toronto Maple Leafs. The ragtag team got off to a rough start, losing so many exhibition games that Canadian newspapers called them a disgrace to the country. But the RCAF Flyers battled back, and Boucher’s defensive strategy paid off. They eliminated the American team, tied the Czech team and beat the Swiss as the hometown crowd pelted the Canadians with snowballs during the game. On the same ice where Barbara Ann Scott won a gold medal, the underdog RCAF Flyers also won Olympic gold, and their goalie, Murray Dowey, set an Olympic record that still stands. Against All Odds is the inspiring untold story of a group of determined men, fresh from the battlefields of WWII, who surprised a nation and the world.

An exciting, behind-the scenes look at P.K. Subban - a superstar both on and off the ice! From his earliest days, P.K. (short for Pernell-Karl) has been a force! He comes from a family dedicated to hard work and fun; a family not afraid to take chances. Amazing Hockey Stories traces his journey, from his time as an Atom to his time on Team Canada, when he won Olympic gold, and then all the way to the NHL and his exciting Stanley Cup runs with the Predators. This book also highlights Subban's commitment to important causes. His support for the Montreal Children's Hospital and other children's charities has made Subban a hero off the ice. Almost as legendary? His sense of humour and cutting-edge style! In this third book in the series, author Lorna Schultz Nicholson, a bona fide lover of the game, gives young readers an up-close look at this true hockey superstar. This series features an action-packed format combining the excitement of full-colour comic book illustration segments with lively text and lots of photographs.

Even hockey legends start with hand-me-downs. A beautifully illustrated true childhood story about hockey great Bobby Orr. Bobby eats, sleeps and breathes hockey. So when his birthday is coming up, he only wants one thing: new skates. He's seen the exact pair he wants in the shop window: sparkling blades, shiny leather, clean new laces tied in perfect bows. But when Bobby opens his gift, he's dismayed to find hand-me-down skates: scuffed leather, nicked blades, floppy laces. Once Bobby breaks them in, though, he and the hand-me-down skates become inseparable, and he can't imagine life without them . . . until the brand-new skates come into his life. How can he leave his hand-me-down skates behind? Log Driver's Waltz illustrator Jennifer Phelan brings this classic story to life with timeless, gorgeous art, and Kara Kootsra's words evoke the joy and dedication that Bobby Orr brought to his favorite sport. A perfect gift for readers and fans big and small, this book is destined to be a classic that is reached for time and time again.

Sixteen-year-old Nick Macklin's life has been divided in two. Before and After. Before his father went to jail, and After. Before, he was a talented hockey player, an A student, in love with his girlfriend, Sherry, and had the greatest dad in the world, a man who not only was there for him after his mom died of cancer, but who was also a star player for the Vancouver Canucks. Then the bottom fell out. His father was convicted of murder and given a life sentence for a crime Nick is convinced he didn't commit. Now living with his dad's agent, the only thing that keeps Nick going is a burning desire to seek justice for his father. Who framed him? And why? Drifting away from everything and everyone who matters, Nick spends his days roaming the city, looking for the bald man with a limp who is the key to answering these questions: the man his father swears planted the evidence that led to his conviction. Finding him is like looking for a needle in a haystack - until Nick stumbles on a very real clue, an eye-opening revelation that just might save his father... and himself.
