Professional hockey is a fast game, and a dangerous one. Skates slice like razors; a hard-shot puck can take out an eye; and the ice surface is as hard as rock, especially when skulls are slammed against it. Innovations in equipment make the game faster and more exciting—and have to be countered by measures that keep it safe for players.
   From hockey heroes like Mario Lemieux and Sidney Crosby to an avid eleven-year-old on a mission, players have fought hard for a safer game. This book tells the story of hockey’s safety stars as they successfully campaigned for safety measures despite opposition from league managers, sports writers, fans and sometimes other players too.
Courageous players have battled to make hockey safe—here's how they did it.
