  • The speed and skill of a new hockey generation — in photos and stories

Fast Ice: Superstars of the New NHL features profiles of more than 50 of today’s greatest stars. Included are veterans like Sidney Crosby and arch-rival Alexander Ovechkin, but the heart of the book is the youth movement that has given fans new optimism for an exciting future. Written by bestselling author Andrew Podnieks and featuring dozens of full-colour photographs, this is sure to be a compelling addition to the hockey lover’s library.
