What is the A to Z Encyclopaedia of Ice Hockey ?

Based in the UK, we are compiling the A to Z to cover ice hockey across the globe - not just links but details about hockey - players, people, teams, leagues, competitions, awards, events, rinks, books, magazines, web sites etc

then use the Go To Index bar or the Browse Page bar (at the top of each page) to open a sub-letter index or a sub-letter page. 

You could also try our Search feature.

Visit the various sections of the encyclopaedia by clicking on the appropriate heading in the centre of the

'Nicknames' are listed in single quote marks. "Book" & "Film" titles are listed in double quote marks (year books and annuals are listed without quote marks).

With the number of pages in the A to Z and the volume of information we are dealing with, the pages are updated as and when additional information is added to a page so, at the top of most pages we show when that page was
last updated.
