In a pocket-sized format that can be taken to the rink, Tim Moshansky and his brothers Perry, Sheldon and Travis have explained more than 800 hockey terms and phrases used by players, coaches and sports commentators, along with NHL trivia and history, for their A to Z Guide to Hockey Terms (First Wave Publishing, 2010), first published in 2006. We learn Mario Lemieux was the first player to score in every category during one game: even strength , Power Play, Short-Handed, Penalty shot and Empty Net. No player has ever done it since. Pucks are frozen prior to professional games. As many as 30 or 40 pucks are used in each NHL game. If you play more than 10 seasons in the NHL, you qualify for roommate amnesty. That means you can have your own room on road trips.
