Last night, the Los Angeles Kings won their first Stanley Cup ever, in the 46th year of their existence. They're celebrating in LA and while none of our area hockey teams went home with the big prize, it's a long wait until the puck gets dropped again. Summer is the perfect time to keep cool by delving into hockey's legends and history.
Short of making the trip to the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto, the best way to do that is with Hockey Hall of Fame Treasures. It's a new coffee table book filled with beautiful color photos of historic artifacts -- Wayne Gretzky's jersey, a recreation of the Canadiens' dressing room, timelines, goalie masks, over a thousand pucks, and much more.
Congratulations to the Kings and happy off-season to all hockey fans, already counting the days until fall!
