Description

Hockey Hall of Fame Unstoppable features the most accurate and fear-inducing snipers that have graced the NHL.

From early-days stars like the hard-firing Joe Malone and the swift-skating Howie Morenz to today's best lamp-lighters like Sydney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin, you can be sure that pucks are tickling the twine in Hockey Hall of Fame Unstoppable.

Making the argument that a team's best defense is a good offense are the 32 players that make up the Hockey Hall of Fame's prestigious 500 Club. From its first member (the legendarily intense Maurice Richard), to its last (the highest scoring American-born player, Mike Modano), the list of members spans 50 years and 54 Hall of Fame induction classes.

In this one-of-a-kind, offensively geared reference, celebrate each player from the 500 Club with an account of their most impressive marker. Jean Beliveau's unforgettable three goals in 44 seconds pushed the NHL to change the way penalties were served. Bobby Hull scored two goals in the 50th game of the season to tie and break Maurice Richard's 50 goals in 50 games record. The goals recounted here changed the shape of professional hockey.

Milton and Ryan also count down the most memorable markers ever scored in hockey history -- Hall of Famer or not. From Paul Henderson in 1972 to Sidney Crosby in 2010 to Darryl Sittler's 10-point game, find out which red-light moments made the cut.

Like a forehand-backhand deke, Hockey Hall of Fame Unstoppable is a top-shelf beauty!
