Shots on Goal is a hockey picture that focuses on the current goalkeepers of the NHL. Each team is given coverage with a short statistical-biographical sketch of each of its goalkeepers, and an accompanying full-page colour action-shot of one of them. The colour photographs are quite large and attractive but very grainy, a characteristic that will be of little concern to the diehard fan. There is little information here that cannot be found in other books dealing with the current rosters of the NHL. It probably will be of interest only to the few people who have a particular interest in goalkeepers. Consequently it is a dubious choice for school libraries. Probably best suited as a gift book for a goalie fan or as browsing material where there is a large hockey fan audience.
