The National Hockey League is celebrating its hundredth anniversary in 2017-2018-but Bob Duff's The First Season reveals how close the league came to folding in its very first year. Set against the turmoil of the Great War and born out of a ruse to rid the league of reviled Toronto owner Eddie Livingstone, the new league suffered from a series of crises: from a shortfall of quality players due to military conscription, to rival leagues and divided fan loyalties, to the burning down of the Montreal Arena that was home ice to two teams. But despite all this, the league survived-and became the worldwide standard for competitive hockey.

With chapters devoted to the first-ever NHL playoffs and Stanley Cup championships, in addition to team and player profiles and vintage black and white photos, Duff's The First Season is essential reading for every hockey fan, providing real insight about the first generation of hockey heroes.
