"Life on the ice sounds pretty cool, but it's not all fun and games. This book is a frank and fascinating look at what it takes to play pro hockey, from starting young to building skills, staying in shape, balancing school and sports, and the importance of having an agent. Chapters cover the history of the game, a day in the life of a pro hockey player, the risks of playing such a rough, aggressive sport, and the annual battle for the Stanley Cup. Each chapter features attention-grabbing photos and examples from the lives of well-known players. A Fun Facts section includes more facts, plus anecdotes and lore unique to the game"--Provided by the publisher.
