A celebration of the twentieth anniversary of one of the greatest seasons in hockey history

Twenty years after the fact, the mere mention of the 1992-93 NHL season brings back vivid memories for hockey fans across North America. The last time that the Montreal Canadiens hoisted the Stanley Cup, Wayne Gretzky's last appearance in a playoff final, and Mario Lemieux's most inspirational season, these years are rightly considered some of the greatest in NHL history. Now, in A Season in Time: Super Mario, Killer, St. Patrick, the Great One, and the Unforgettable 1992-93 NHL Season, acclaimed hockey writer Todd Denault looks back to those heady days.

The story of a truly magical age for hockey in North America, a time that came to be known as "the last great season," where hope reigned, where the unthinkable seemed possible, and some of the greatest legends the game has ever seen took to the ice, A Season in Time is a true trip down memory lane. Covering the stories of Mario Lemieux, Wayne Gretzky, Patrick Roy, and Doug Gilmour, and capturing the frenzy and excitement that hasn't been seen since, the book is essential reading for hockey lovers of all ages.

  • Captures the passion, the glory, and the magic of one of the greatest NHL seasons of all time
  • Celebrates the twentieth anniversary of the 1992-1993 season
  • Covers everything from Patrick Roy's legendary goaltending exhibition to Wayne Gretzky's famous high stick on Doug Gilmour to Kerry Fraser's blown call

Insightful and informative, A Season in Time is a loving look back at a season for the ages.
