We are the Society for International Hockey Research, a community of writers, statisticians, collectors, broadcasters, academics and fans of hockey history.



Bulletin goes digital

Starting with the March 2018 issue, the quarterly SIHR Bulletin will no longer be printed and mailed and will only be available as a PDF file.

In addition to saving money for the society and reducing the effort required by volunteers, this change will get the Bulletin into the hands of members faster, and in full colour.

2018 Fall Meeting, Dallas, Texas

October 19 & 20, 2018

The Dallas Stars have extended an invition to the SIHR to hold its 2018 fall meeting in that city, lending credence to the city's motto, "Big Things Happen Here." Many activities related to the history of hockey in the state are being planned by the team, and the Society is happy to be part of the celebrations, which will be the farthest west and south that a meeting has ever been held.

The Friday night will feature a game against the Minnesota Wild.

The official hotel is the Dallas/Addison Marriott Quorum by the Galleria, and booking online is now available at a group rate of $125 USD / night. Book now.

More details will be available soon.
