Who's nicknamed "Gretzky of the Fjords"? Who invented the slapshot? Who said, "I went to a fight and a hockey game broke out"? These, and dozens more fun trivia questions, will test young fans' stores of hockey lore. As they answer quizzes, play games, solve puzzles, and match pictures, kids will be entertained by this collection of heroic--and not so heroic--facts about the sport's most extraordinary and colorful characters. Questions offer a range of difficulty and lots of multiple choice to allow both devoted stats collectors and interested rookies a chance to score big points. There are not only facts about players and records here, but also rules, plays and gear, so kids can learn more about the game as they work through the book. Illustrations and jokes provide comic time-out between games. A flip-book feature depicts a hockey play in motion--and readers get bonus points if they know its name. This will score a goal with kids who want to know everything about hockey--even what Philly Flyer Ed Hospodar said to Montreal's Claude Lemieux just before clobbering him! 64 pages, 64 b/w illus., 6 x 9.
