The hockey stars of the 1950s and '60s?Rocket Richard, Gordie Howe, Dave Keon, Bobby Hull, Jean Beliveau, Terry Sawchuk, Tim Horton, and others?were some of the most passionate players in National Hockey League history. These skillful and often colorful athletes played exhilarating hockey and were national heroes in a time when only six teams and fewer than 150 players battled for the Stanley Cup.

Hockey's Original Six celebrates the most dynamic players and exciting moments of the era in more than 120 photographs from the legendary Harold Barkley Archives, including a number of never ? or rarely seen ? images. From 1942 until the early '70s, Barkley was the Toronto Star's leading sports photographer. He pioneered the use of electronic flash to capture stop-action hockey, and his dramatic work?both black and white and vibrant color?define the pre-expansion period.

Two informative essays by Mike Leonetti - hockey historian, archivist, and prolific sportswriter - set Barkley and the photos in context, and short image captions illuminate the players and their feats. Jean BĂ©liveau - hockey legend and elder statesman - provides a personal and insightful foreword.
