Between Periods



I bumped into Tim Moshansky while picking up a coffee outside CBC. He and his brother Perry have self-published this little reference, A to Z Guide to Hockey Terms. You'll find definitions for such things as: "flashing the leather", making a "seam pass" or having a "yard sale."(Think bench-clearing brawl.) Referee signals are illustrated, and there's loads of trivia including the weight of the Stanley Cup (35 pounds.) A good primer for hockey newbies wondering what all the fuss is about.

To encourage thoughtful and respectful conversations, first and last names will appear with each submission to CBC/Radio-Canada's online communities (except in children and youth-oriented communities). Pseudonyms will no longer be permitted.
