Editorial Reviews

Review

Interesting details about award controversies, background about how the trophies were named, gripes from spurned players, and collector-card-type photos make the book fun to read. There is humor in quotes from icons such as Ted Lindsay, who said his "involuntary plastic surgery" (stitches from hockey injuries) improved his appearance. Libraries in areas where ice hockey flourishes will relish this colorful history. (Barbara Johnston VOYA 2012-04-01)

This gorgeous volume showcases the winners of the National Hockey League's three most prestigious awards and trophies: the Hart Memorial Trophy, the game's oldest individual award, given to the year's most valuable player as selected by the Professional Hockey Writers' Association; the Ted Lindsay Award, also given to the year's MVP but selected by the NHL Players Association; and the Conn Smythe Trophy, presented to the MVP of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The text is organized around the three awards... the illustrations are spectacular: sparkling action shots of all the greats strutting their stuff. (Bill Ott Booklist 2011-09-01)

Duff and Shea provide a thorough background for a handful of these awards--they have gone through any number of name changes and trophy models--and all the controversies and close calls. They then provide short biographies and crisp photos of the winners of the three principal trophies--there are enough action shots to make readers want to hit the pond for a little shinny.... The tone is enthusiastic, and the book runneth over with facts and lore. Any hockey fan will revel in these profiles of most valuable players, especially the oldsters that stir such memories--all those goals, all those broken noses. (Michael Coffey Kirkus Reviews 2011-11-01)

Once again this Firefly volume gives an incredible amount of information for the hockey enthusiast. It will be well received by all who have an interest in the game. (Victoria Pennell Resource Links 2011-01-00)
