Since 1919, the Memorial Cup championship has provided excitement for all hockey fans and happy hunting grounds for National Hockey League scouts. It has shaped the way junior hockey is played in North America. Harbour Publishing is proud to present the very first book devoted to our national junior final and its heart-pounding history.

So come on in! Experience the spine-tingling performances of teams from hockey's golden era, like the Winnipeg Monarchs, who pioneered the power play with their checkerboard passing in the enemy's defensive zone. Read about Billy "The Kid" Taylor of the 1939 Oshawa Generals, who has been described as the Bobby Orr of his day but became embroiled in a gambling scandal that ended his career. And move up to the modern era, where players such as Eric Lindros and Trevor Linden have helped their teams to the most sought-after trophy in junior hockey. Loaded with rare archival photographs, this book will fascinate hockey fans of all stripes and any Canadian interested in our cultural heritage.
Junior hockey has played a prominent role in Canada's national sports picture for nearly eighty years.
