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
