THE KNIGHTS OF WINTER
Hockey in British Columbia
1895-1911

Before the NHL, before the Pacific Coast League, British Columbia was vibrant with ice hockey. When a big game was played, everything would stop. Who were the players, the fans, and what did it all mean to them? How did rules evolve in those formative years, and how did events then influence the hockey we know today? This exhaustively researched book includes the names of over 3,000 early participants and details the amazing careers of the Patrick brothers in Nelson before they left for the coast to start the PCL in 1911.
