About the Book
In "On His Own Side of the Puck", hockey historian Iain Fyffe delves into the original 1875 rules of organized hockey, where they came from, and how they developed over the next several decades. Featuring discussion of the rules of a number of nineteenth-century sports, and the complete text of many codes of hockey rules from major hockey leagues from across Canada and the United States from 1875 to 1915, this book is an important contribution to the study of early organized hockey.
Iain Fyffe has been researching hockey history for nearly two decades. He has been a contributor to several hockey websites, and has had a number of articles published in the Hockey Research Journal, for which he served as editor for several years. A longtime member of the Society for International Hockey Research, his primary hockey output is currently the blog Hockey Historysis.
