Red, White, and Gold is the first ever in-depth analysis of Canada’s hockey teams at the World Junior Championships. It traces our teams’ partipation from the early years when the tournament was an invitational (1974-76), through the first official years when players such as Wayne Gretzky, Dino Ciccarelli, and Mike Gartner played for Canada, through to the recent years of Paul Kariya, Eric Lindros, and Jason Allison. The book examines the World Juniors chronologically, year by year, including a preview chapter to this year’s 1999 championships in Winnipeg. It provides the most comprehensive anecdotal, factual, and statistical information ever compiled for the world’s most prestigious junior tournament. In addition, each chapter is accompanied by rarely seen and never-before published photographs. Red, White, and Gold also includes a guide and record book for the World Juniors — the first of its kind. It includes information about all 386 players who have represented Canada over the years, and provides every team and individual record imaginable. Red, White, and Gold is an officially licensed product of both Canadian Hockey and the International Ice Hockey Federation.
