A to Z Encyclopaedia of Ice Hockey

The encyclopaedia will always be a "work in progress" and your suggestions for items to be included will always be welcome.

On our credits page we list all contributors to the encyclopaedia together with the number of entries they have successfully submitted. If you would like to be included on the list please let us know.

Before suggesting an entry please read the qualification criteria below.

Qualification Criteria

To decide whether to include a team, a player or an administrator - we are using the following criteria.

The country, league or competition participated in must be sanctioned by an ice hockey organisation affiliated to the IIHF. (This applies to teams, players or administrators)

For a player to be included they should also meet one of the following.

a) A player who has played as a International for any country - senior or junior
b) A player who is a member of any country's Hall of Fame
c) A player who has been picked in any league's All-Star team - first or second team
d) A player who has received any recognized "league" or "writer's association" award
e) A player who has been in a championship, league or cup winning team and has won a medal.
f) A player who is unique in some way or holds some sort of record (see the entries for Matt Frewer, James Robertson Justice, John Haney or Kevin MacNaught - the last two qualified as Internationals anyway but ...)

We are also prepared to consider other cases.
