Weaving up and down the ice, driven by the call of the net, hockey's most celebrated centremen sought always to get there first. Fast and furious, constantly in motion, these successful scorers waited for the face-offs, made the plays, took the penalties and controlled the puck. This book celebrates Sid Abel, Frank Boucher, Alex Delvecchio, Henri Richard and others who left their mark on some of the most thrilling moments in hockey history.
