Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This is an official publication of the National Hockey League, with the league's consulting publisher, Dan Diamond, acting as editor. Providing much more than a mere book of regulations, author Duplacey, a hockey historian and former curator of the sport's hall of fame and museum, examines the rules from 1900 to the present. The contents are divided into six chapters, covering the rinks, teams, equipment, penalties, officials, and playing guidelines. An appendix containing the 87 rules governing the game is particularly useful. The text is organized in a user-friendly format, with each rule highlighted in a sidebar with corresponding annotations of actual incidents. Duplacey's compilation provides new insights into the intricacies of professional hockey and is a definitive source for the armchair referee. A worthwhile purchase for public libraries. L.R. Little, Penticton P.L., British Columbia
Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

The Official Rules of Hockey is a historical, anecdotal, and illustrated guide to the rules of the world's fastest game. Stuffed full of fascinating stories and photographs, it pulls more than a century of the sport into sharp focus for fans of today's international NHL game - from a referee's decision in 1900 to disallow a goal after the puck split in half to Marty McSorely's illegal stick that could have cost the Los Angeles Kings their shot at the 1993 Stanley Cup. The Official Rules of Hockey also includes helpful rink diagrams, illustrations of officials' signals, and a compendium of milestone moments chronicling the sport's evolving rules of play. It's an essential and insightful reference book for players and fans alike. (7 X 91/4, 216 pages, b&w photos, illustrations, diagrams)

Format: Paperback
The Annotated Rules of Hockey breaks down every rule in effect in the NHL and describes the events leading up to them. Being both fascinating and humorous, any fan of the game (or fans of any game) will love it. This book is a great way to learn about famous players, coaches, teams, officials, and rinks. It also offers detailed game photographs of penalties, fights, and goals, including hand signals. It's perfect for new fans, or long-time followers of hockey. I was very satisfied with the simplicity of the format, unlike other books describing the rules. It's a great way to impress your friends by telling them why we have things like blue lines in the greatest game on earth.

Great read, very interesting. Used as a source for a informative speech about the evolution of NHL rules. Excellent descriptions, wish there was a more modern version!
