“The history timeline about hockey cards is second-to-none. The author has selected some very offbeat items to showcase in the eight-page color spread. Throughout the book, in bits and pieces, you learn about many different hockey collectibles you didn’t know existed.” — Puck Junk
"He Shoots, He Saves is a must-read for any true hockey fan, historian, or memorabilia collector . . . A fascinating look at hockey artifacts." — Collectors Chronicle
