Sports and science go well together as this book clearly demonstrates. The easy-to-follow experiments help explain the difference between fast and slow ice, why hockey sticks break, the advantages of hockey tape, and why pucks should be frozen. Other experiments measure strength, reaction time, balance, and agility with tips on improving all four. It'll make hockey practice fun!
