The Hockey Research Anthology, Vol. 1

The Society for International Hockey Research is proud to announce the release of Pucklore, The Hockey Research Anthology published by Quarry Heritage Books of Kingston, Ontario. The book is the first publicly available publication from SIHR and features selected articles taken from the annual Hockey Research Journal between 1993 and 2011.

The collection features articles from twenty-two authors from Canada, the United States, Sweden and England and includes noted hockey writers J.W. (Bill) Fitsell, Kevin Shea, Eric Zweig, Paul Kitchen and Jim Mancuso.

Pucklore authors celebrate the founder of the organized game, James Creighton, reveal the first 1,000 goal scorer, trace the evolution of the hockey net, recreate the trial of Allan Loney for murder on the ice, and present more fascinating stats and stories than you can shake a hockey stick at.
