Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fun, always surprising and a hockey lover's treasure chest of the little-known facts that shaped the game, you cannot Google the stuff that Liam Maguire shares in this entertaining little book. About 30% updated, revised and renewed from Liam’s 2001 trivia collection, What's the Score?, First Goal Wins! includes a foreword by Wayne Gretzky. Liam has scoured the depths of the NHL archives and stats to put together many of these questions and answers, which you can't get from just looking up your favourite player on Wikipedia. What sets his take on hockey trivia apart from the many pretenders out there is the magical connections he builds between the numbers, the players and the game's history. Besides the straight goods, you always get the ultimate "And did you know...?"

About the Author

LIAM MAGUIRE became Canada's unofficial hockey trivia expert in 1981. Since then he has made many appearances across the country at speaking engagements and on television and radio. Liam has hosted his own online hockey show and also worked on some of the pre- and post-game radio broadcasts for the Ottawa Senators. He even proposed to his wife at centre ice of the Montreal Forum (the only couple ever to do that in the building's 71 years, 3 months and 17 days of existence). He lives in Osgoode, Ontario.
