Local Heroes

A History of the Western Hockey League
A BC Bestseller!

Book Description

Great Canadian hockey stars aren't born, they're made - many of them, like Bobby Clarke, in the teams that make up the Western Hockey League. This first history of the WHL, tracing the league from its establishment in the 1960s to the present day, has all the stories of all the teams, coaches and stars: who they are (or were), how their skills developed (or didn't), where they are now. Here is the complete history of the league as it unfolded in Vancouver, Victoria, New Westminster, Kamloops, Penticton, Edmonton, Calgary, Lethbridge, Saskatoon, Regina, Prince Albert, Winnipeg, Brandon, Seattle, Spokane, Portland and all the other communities where hockey is taken very seriously. This book is right up to date and will be a handy reference guide for years to come.
