Welcome To Maple Leaf Gardens by Graig Abel and Lance Hornby
ECW Press - $39.95 US/CDN
For hockey fans of a certain age – particularly fans of a particular NHL team based in Toronto, Maple Leaf Gardens was hallowed ground. It was where their heroes took to the ice to battle with interlopers from all of North America and many made the journey there to watch them in good times and bad.

Caps-Flyers Preseason Scouting Notes
Michael Raffl - 6-1, 192 - LW - When this shifty player gets the puck he tries to create. Caps tried to tie him up along the wall but that worked only a few times. He’s always around the net looking to make a play, shoot or deflect a puck. He’s a solid passer and can make good passes with players leaning on him. His smooth skating helps him gain the offensive zone quickly.

The Third Best Hull by Dennis Hull with Robert Thompson
ECW Press - $19.95 US/CDN
For many hockey fans, Dennis Hull is regarded as one of the most entertaining figures the game has ever seen – especially if one is familiar with his work off the ice!
While the author declares his brother Bobby and nephew Brett to be the two best Hulls, the self-deprecating title of the book certainly downplays the impact that Hull had on the game itself. However, the reader soon comes to realize that he may indeed be the funniest Hull of all.
