101 Incredible Hockey Stories

About The Book

In Stan Fischler’s latest hockey classic, Behind the Net, Fischler includes a collection of short, zany (but true!) tales that have taken place over more than a half century of hockey-watching. An easy read for fans of all ages with photos to accompany the anecdotes, this book offers a unique perspective into the NHL from one of today’s most prolific hockey writers. Different from the typical NHL “game” stories, this book details everything, from the hilarious to the absurd. Fischler details the time that:

  • Bill Mosienko scored three goals in 21 seconds
  • Rene Fernand Gauthier accepted a challenge to shoot the puck in the ocean
  • Sam LoPresti faced 83 shots on goal in one game
  • And 98 more unique stories!
So lace up your skates and hit the ice with Behind the Net, a comprehensive collection sure to entertain any hockey fan, regardless of team allegiances.
