Rochester, New York, emerged courageously with its first professional hockey team in the fall of 1935: the Rochester Cardinals. However, the venture was short-lived due to the financial strain of the Great Depression. Finally, in 1956, thanks to local visionaries such as Sam Toth and Ed House, Rochester became home to the Americans. The Amerks began a legacy of greatness from their inception as a joint affiliate of the legendary Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs. This volume is a salute to those who have shaped Rochester s hockey history for more than thirty-seven hundred games."
