what is the book about?
This book is a must buy for any fan of ice hockey. It is a collection of stories, anecdotes, observations and rants from fans, from all over Europe, about the National Hockey League (NHL). Ice Hockey Nights in Europe seeks to demonstrate how dedicated fans are for ice hockey outside of North America. By posing eight simple questions, the book shows how much fans love and are willing to do for their chosen team. Fans from all 30 current NHL teams have contributed to the book. Contributions have been sent from all over Europe: Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Norway, Poland, Republic of Ireland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden as well as British representation from England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
Questions posed in the book include ‘what are your highlights and lowlights for your team?’, ‘which team or teams do you love to hate?’, ‘what is your biggest sacrifice or most committed act as a devoted fan?’. Containing contentious topics such as the fighting debate and what changes would you make as NHL Commissioner, the book doesn’t shy away from tackling these head on.
