Celebrate the NHL's most amazing stats, records and achievements! With a contemporary design and loads of incredible photographs, NHL themes and logos, and fantastic hockey writing, Records Forever: Hockey's Unbeatable Achievements is a must-have for any hockey fan!

Hockey fans love records. They love to see what player holds the record for most points, most goals, the greatest number of assists and most amount of penalty minutes. Each season, there is a new points leader and records created one year are surpassed another. But for some players and teams, their achievements are so great that their record is considered next to unbeatable!

Just a few unbeatable achievements:

  • To better Wayne Gretzky's 2,857 career points would require that a player have 29 consecutive 100 point seasons.
  • Buffalo Sabres scoring 9 goals in a single period - when will that happen again?
  • George Hainsworth's 22 shut-outs in a single season - with today's sharpshooters, protecting a win, let alone a shutout, let alone 22 shutouts in a season, is an incredible challenge!
