Last night I finished reading The Greatest Game I Ever Played: 40 Epic Tales of Hockey Brilliance, a collection of short profiles published in 2016 and written by staff members of The Hockey News & several freelance sports writers. My wife bought the book for me as a Christmas present, not long after I had dismissed it during an on-line searches for new-to-me hockey titles. I'm glad she knows my tastes in reading better than I do, because this turned out to be a great little read. Each story is a one-to-three page retrospective on a special moment in the career of a well-known hockey player, covering personal memories from the Olympics & juniors & college & minor pro & NHL games for both men and women in the game. Not much detail in any one of the stories, but more importantly not much fluff either. The individual authors (and the book's editor, I'm sure) get right to the point, and each does a very good job of capturing the excitement & drama of the moments described. Easy & fun to read, just the way I like 'em.
