To win the Stanley Cup is the childhood dream of millions of young hockey players. It is the ultimate goal and it is the most recognized and sought-after trophy in all of sport. There isn't a player that hasn't dreamed of hoisting Lord Stanley's coveted Cup high over his head in celebration, or seeing his name engraved on its silver rings.
Now in its fourth year of publication, the annual Stanley Cup Championship book has quickly become the most sought after of all celebratory hockey keepsakes. It captures every exciting moment from the winning team's post-season play in exacting detail, with incredible photography, game stories, and all the stats a fan could dream of. Yet, the book is more than just a recap of the playoffs; it also provides a history of the team, personal biographies of each current player, and details from the regular season, including a look back at training camp, memorable trades, executive decisions, milestone achievements, the greatest goals, miraculous comebacks, injuries and more. The book will be crammed with loads of stunning full-colour photographs and packed with player and team stats. It is truly a must-have collectible keepsake for any Stanley Cup fan and will be the definitive guide and tribute to the team that did what 29 others couldn't do -- hoist the Stanley Cup in victory.
The 2013 Stanley Cup Championship book will go to press within hours of the final Cup presentation and appear in retail stores just a few short days later.
