On November 26, 1917 , the National Hockey League is formed, with the Montreal Canadiens, Montreal Wanderers, Ottawa Senators, Quebec Bulldogs, and Toronto Arenas as its first teams. Using a small town hockey team as a key motif, Fredrik Backman’s Beartown explores the elements that make up community unity and what it takes to uncover and confront hurtful secrets. It is as much about humanity as it is about hockey.
