Hockey Heroes: Paul Kariya (Hockey Heroes)

Hockey Heroes: Paul Kariya (Hockey Heroes) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When it comes to passing the puck and reacting to hockey's fast pace, Paul Kariya has only one peer--Wayne Gretzky. And, wherever this Anaheim Mighty Ducks' left-winger plays, he astonishes competitors and teammates alike with his talent. Using dramatic color photography and an exciting text just right for 8 to 10 year olds, here is the fascinating story of Kariya's many successes. He was elected most valuable junior player in Canada; won the Hobey Baker Memorial Award as best player in US college hockey; helped power the Canadian team to a silver medal in the Olympics and a gold in the World Championships; and has twice topped 100 points in a season. A homage to a true ambassador of the game.
