The Girlfriend's Guide to Hockey by Will Ferguson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


When Teena Spencer's new, sensitive, caring, artistic boyfriend, Bruce transformed himself into a swearing hooligan in front of the TV one spring evening she had to find out the trigger for his unappealing conversion. This new element responsible for the change in her relationship bliss: The Stanley Cup playoffs. Teena was thus compelled to understand this strange and powerful force men call hockey. In this book, Teena illuminates the arcane language of the sport (butt-ending and chippy play), the rules (icing) and the rituals (octopus throwing). It is all here: the teams, the history, the top players and the trivia, written with clarity and humour. There are also details on women's hockey, too, including Canada's silver medal winning 1998 Olympic team. (Who, after all, did better than the men!).
