Overview

Author Brian Kennedy explores the deep roots of Canada’s hockey obsession, which has become an integral piece of our national mythology. From the origins of the game in Mi'kmaq culture to Olympic gold, he delves into how the game explains who we are as Canadians. From Rocket Richard to Wayne Gretzky, our heroic ideals draw from hockey culture. Rivalries between regions, languages and cities are played out in the hockey arena, and our values and spirit of identity have been shaped by the toughness and teamwork on the ice.
