Explore hockey’s history through its unique and most desirable memorabilia

Whether it’s a ticket stub from a game that father and son saw together, an autographed photograph from a hero, or a puck that went up and over the boards, hockey memorabilia is a record of our beloved sport’s history.

He Shoots, He Saves looks at hockey’s collectibles from hockey cards to commemorative beer cans to postage stamps. The book features artifacts from all 30 NHL teams, the greatest players of all-time, the WHA, the international game including the Summit Series, and the women’s game. Hockey greats such as Martin Brodeur, Frank Mahovlich, Ted Lindsay, and Sidney Crosby recall their own days collecting and offer their perspectives on memorabilia.

Editorial Reviews


“The history timeline about hockey cards is second-to-none. The author has selected some very offbeat items to showcase in the eight-page color spread. Throughout the book, in bits and pieces, you learn about many different hockey collectibles you didn’t know existed.” — Puck Junk

"He Shoots, He Saves is a must-read for any true hockey fan, historian, or memorabilia collector . . . A fascinating look at hockey artifacts." — Collectors Chronicle
