Great Hockey Stories is a sampling of articles about hockey that have appeared in newspapers from 1829 to 2004. Actually, our very earliest selection is from a periodical, The Acadian Magazine, January 1827!

We have chosen these stories from Library and Archives Canada's collection of newspapers held in microfilm format. Papers in English and French are represented, from Corner Brook to Montréal, and from Victoria to Whitehorse, plus articles from The New York Times.

Our coverage cannot possibly be comprehensive, because so much has been written about the sport.

We have looked for milestone events, human-interest stories, startling trades, tragic deaths. You will find reference to the first Stanley Cup for each city that has won it, the first Allan Cup and Memorial Cup for each province and state, Canadian men's and women's Olympic gold, the first Olympic gold, world championship, and world junior championship for each country that has won it, the King Clancy trade, the death of "One-eyed" Frank McGee, and a lot more!

Contemporary accounts of hockey happenings are free of analytical hindsight. They reveal the unvarnished perceptions and emotions of the time. We hope you will enjoy browsing these pages from the past.

Please note that some articles have been abridged. The original wording of all articles has been retained however, including any errors in the original text.
