The Summit Series, known at the time simply as the Canada–USSR Series, was an eight-game series of hockey between the Soviet Union and Canada, held in September 1972. It was the first competition between the Soviet national team and a Canadian team represented by professional players of the National Hockey League, known as Team Canada. The series was organized with the intention to create a true best-on-best competition in the sport of ice hockey. The Soviets had become the dominant team in international competitions, which disallowed the professional players of Canada. Canada had had a long history of dominance of the sport prior to the Soviets' rise.Summit Series 1972 was dedicated to one of the greatest series ever played in the history of international hockey.
