"He shoots, he scores!"

Hockey has a language unique to the game that has developed over the past hundred years. The patter of play-by-play and colour commentators shapes how the fans understand and relate to the game. Hockey Talk introduces young readers-both seasoned hockey enthusiasts and novices alike-to the unique terminology of hockey with over 150 terms, clear explanations, an illustrated cast of characters, and sidebars of fun facts. Short profiles of ten influential commentators, including Don Cherry, Danny Gallivan, Foster Hewitt, and Mike Lange, highlight their contributions to the language of this great winter sport.
