"The revamped and updated Team Spirit: Hockey series is just the ticket for budding prognosticators eager to challenge one another with minutiae about their favorite squads. This volume traces the rise (and fall, and rise again) of the NHL team in L.A.—a preposterous idea at first. Begun with other teams’ rejects, the Kings eventually assembled a strong group in the 90s, building up to their defining moment: the signing of Wayne Gretzky in 1988. Each chapter digs into one element: the stadiums, the uniforms, “Go-To Guys,” coaches, and more. The fun stuff, though, is the trivia, fun facts, and “Great Debates,” which toss red meat for die-hards to fight over. Keenly illustrated with big action shots of our bearded, gap-toothed heroes and reproductions of sports cards, this makes for an excellent time on the ice."
