Sports, creators of CLASSIC HOCKEY, have teamed up to
re-enact the 1972 Summit Series in September 2002!
Thirty years later
the mighty 1972 Soviet Union national team will once again face-off against
Canada's best from the 1972 National Hockey League. Will Valeri Kharlamov and
Alexander Yakushev out-flash and out-dash Team Canada again? Will
Vladislav Tretiak re-erect the Iron Curtain in front of his net? Can Phil
Esposito and Paul Henderson create timely magic a second time? Or maybe
there will be new heroes. Or maybe there will be a new winner.

professional team from 1917 to the present, as well as international

intimate game details including goal scorers and assisters. Teams are
rated on offensive and defensive strength, home ice advantage, and
comeback ability. The game has proven to be a truly accurate tool for
recreating history, and for predicting the future.
Each Summit Series game will be replayed on the actual anniversary date.
