The world of hockey has many interesting and odd facts. In this monthly series we hope to bring you some unusual and occasionally bizarre facts. We want to capture hockey at every level, definitely not just international, so if you know of any unusual or odd facts relating to our sport, please email it to us. If you have a photo or illustration to go with it, even better. Also, this is not just a British feature. It is for the whole of the hockey world, so please give us your contributions wherever you are.

This style of feature appears regularly in many publications and websites. Because hockey was blessed with excellent magazines for both the women's and men's games throughout the 20th century we are able to pick up on statistics and news from half a century ago.

The same cannot be said of a century ago as that was WW1. However, when we do come across information from that dreadful period we will publish occasional pieces on "Hockey 100 Years Ago".
