Everett Sports Publishing & Marketing, 1998 - Sports & Recreation - 160 pages
The book will be an insightful look into the first truly global sporting event that utilizes the absolute best professional and amateur athletes available from around the world. Competing head to head in perhaps the most physical, challenging and fastest game on earth. Unlike the "Dream Team" in basketball at the last two summer games where the USA dominated due to the presence of NBA players. This competition will showcase the best athletes from the NHL and around the world playing for their respective countries. Putting everyone on a level playing field.
The book will be full of action shots of the players, statistics and profiles. Published with the cooperation of the National Hockey League (NHL) and USA Hockey. This publication will carry their respective marks. Both organizations are opening up their libraries of photographs and statistics in addition to putting their combined marketing muscle behind the publication to insure a commercial success. The publication will continue to be sold and promoted throughout the NHL season and into the NHL Playoffs in June. Specifically, a small historical section, current staff, player profiles, selection process, feature first time NHL participation and first time women's tournament as medal event.
