We are the Society for International Hockey Research, a community of writers, statisticians, collectors, broadcasters, academics and fans of hockey history.



Bulletin goes digital

Starting with the March 2018 issue, the quarterly SIHR Bulletin will no longer be printed and mailed and will only be available as a PDF file.

In addition to saving money for the society and reducing the effort required by volunteers, this change will get the Bulletin into the hands of members faster, and in full colour.
