Sports columnist Dave Stubbs honours Canada’s winter sport in Our Game: The History of Hockey in Canada. This work is an amazing feat, covering 206 years of hockey history in only 48 pages. Photographs and Neal Portnoy’s illustrations frame the text which is digestible due to the author’s accessible writing style and the use of text boxes. It would have been even better if Stubbs had included New Brunswick’s Willie O’Ree, the NHL’s first black player, and other black players (Jarome Iginla, Kevin Weekes) for whom he paved the way. Overall, Our Game is an impressive effort and should be a hit among hockey fans. mRb
