Detroit is known as Hockeytown, and for good reason. The Detroit Red Wings have won 10 Stanley Cups over its storied history, hanging the 10th banner at the end of the 2002 season. After six years without the Cup, now they face newcomers--the Pittsburg Penguins--lead by the Kid Sidney Crosby. Triumph Books partners with the Detroit Free Press, the hometown newspaper that covers ever moment on and off the ice of the heralded Wings, to publisher celebratory keepsake of a Red Wings 11th Stanley Cup Championship.

One of the most respected executives in the NHL, Jim Devellano's phenomenal record of 13 championship rings (including three Stanley Cups for both the New York Islanders and the Detroit Red Wings) is also the story of shrewd trades and brave, if not unorthodox, business decisions. His new memoir takes readers behind the scenes into the offices of a general manager and provides an inside look at what players and coaches are really like; how decisions are made on draft day; and how deals and trades are done. He also sheds light on the miraculous turnaround of the Detroit Red Wings and how such decisions as recruiting from behind the Iron Curtain have left their indelible mark on the game.

Reflecting on nearly five decades with the Detroit Red Wings, Dr. John Finley takes sports fans far beyond closed doors and into the trainer's room where cuts were bandaged, broken noses were reset, sore muscles were rubbed out, and casts made for broken bones. In this stellar memoir, Dr. Finley recounts his experiences with the stars on the revitalized Red Wings franchise in recent years, including Steve Yzerman and Nicklas Lidstrom, as well as heroes of previous generations, including 1972 Hockey Hall of Fame inductee Gordie Howe. Along the way, Dr. Finley shares some of the most vivid accounts ever written on the subject of sports injuries, including the hundreds of stitches he applied to Borje Salming's face after it was cut by Gerard Gallant's errant skate blade, as well as his recommendation on the knee injury sustained by a young Steve Yzerman that ultimately helped maintain his Hall of Fame career.

This collection of surprisingly erotic stories traverses through ten separate tales of our heroine's infinitely long existence and will take you all the way from the far-reaching past to the present day. The many adventures she takes us on are miraculous, dangerous and so very painful, but the power of love prevails despite the turmoil that can make up life.

In December 1979, a Detroit tradition began when the Red Wings took the ice for the first time at their new riverfront home, Joe Louis Arena. Named after former heavyweight champion boxer Joe Louis, the stadium that became affectionately known as "The Joe" saw the renaissance of the Red Wings franchise, including four Stanley Cup championship seasons and a 25-year run of advancing to the playoffs. The Joe: Memories from the Heart of Hockeytown takes a look back at the storied history of Joe Louis Arena in this, its final year. The arena has witnessed many stories, recounted with admiration in The Joe. Red Wings greats from Gordie Howe to Steve Yzerman to Nicklas Lidstrom skated on The Joe's storied ice, and time-honored rivalries, such as those between the Red Wings and Colorado Avalanche, were played out in dramatic fashion. The stadium has spawned such personalities as Al the Zamboni driver, who twirls octopuses overhead, the Knitting Lady, the Guy in the Orange Hat, and Mo Cheese. The Joe also hosted a number of unforgettable non-hockey events, from Ronald Reagan's nomination at the 1980 Republican convention, to the start of Prince's Purple Rain tour in 1984, to N.W.A.'s controversial concert in 1989, to Bob Seger joining Kid Rock on stage during Super Bowl week in 2006. The Joe offers a comprehensive tribute in words and pictures to hockey's last old-time arena. Learn about the history of the Red Wings and The Joe and the unforgettable games played there, as well as a number of key events in Detroit's history. For anyone who has cheered on the Red Wings over the past three-plus decades, this book is not to be missed.

What makes a hockey town? It helps that the world’s greatest hockey franchise – the Montreal Canadiens – made the Peterborough Petes part of their powerful farm system in the mid-1950s. And it definitely helps that a number of great coaches – from Scotty Bowman to Roger Neilson – have stood behind the Petes’ bench. The town’s reputation gains lustre, also, from the roster of its player alumni, including such luminaries as Dit Clapper, Stan Jonathan, Barclay Plager, Rick MacLeish, Bob Gainey, Steve Yzerman, Steve Larmer, Mike Ricci, Chris Pronger, and Jamie Langenbrunner – to name just a few. It’s worth noting, in passing, that Walter Gretzky wanted young Wayne to play for the Petes. (And Wayne did, too, for three games.) All these factors help to explain how Peterborough achieved pre-eminence among hockey cradles. But there’s more to it than this. The story is told thousands of times each winter. It is told by the dads who flood the backyard rinks at three in the morning. It is told by the moms who take their kids to the rink in time for the 6:00 a.m. practice. It is told by the parents who coach and manage the midget teams. Above all, it is told by the players who practise slap shots endlessly in the basement, who play road hockey tirelessly in the spring, and who dream constantly of the day when they will make their mark in the NHL. In telling the stories of Peterborough’s parents, coaches, and hockey-mad kids, of the ones who made it big in the professional game, and of a few who tried and failed, Ed Arnold comes close to capturing the magic of the best sport in the world. From the Hardcover edition.

In this engaging biography, hockey coach and writer Tom Adrahtas traces Mr. Goalie's rise to stardom and firmly establishes his claim to the title of number one all-time goaltender. From the goaltender's legendary pre-game ritual through the evolution of Hall's trademark butterfly style and the unparalleled consistency of his play, this is a history of the heady days of early hockey. Through interviews with Mr. Goalie, Hall's family, and such noteworthy team-mates as Stan Mikita, Doug Harvey, Ted Lindsay, Bobby Hull and many more, Adrahtas brings to life hockey in the golden era and reminds us that Glenn Hall was number one both on the ice and off.
