A Hockeywood All-Star Weekend

Having lived in New England my whole life, I'm pretty immune to cabin fever during the frozen winter months, but even the heartiest of winter warriors enjoys an occasional break from the snow and ice. With the NHL All-Star Game being held in Los Angeles this year, I decided to kill two birds with one stone and head southwest for a long weekend of hockey and sunshine. Before the actual All-Star events got underway, we started our weekend on Friday by checking out Fan Fair, next door to Staples at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Not really knowing what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised to find that the event was like a hockey fan's amusement park with everything from Hall...

New Year Resolutions

With 2016 coming to a close, it seemed like a good time to reflect on the first half of hockey season and make some resolutions for 2017. No team, player or fan is perfect, so with the turning of the calendar comes an opportunity for self-reflection and betterment for the new year. Here are a few classic resolutions that every hockey fan can take to heart: Manage stress better.Like peanut butter and jelly, New England winters and snow, nothing comes with being a sports fan like stress and high blood pressure.

North of the Border

If hockey is truly Canada's game, it seemed only right to extend my recent business trip to Toronto and squeeze in a day of hockey tourism. I was delighted (to say the least) upon arriving to learn that the Hockey Hall of Fame and Air Canada Centre were both within walking distance of my hotel, and I was determined to make the most of it. Note: I've been anxiously awaiting this trip since July, so this blog has been a long time coming.

Opening Night 2016

For the first time in six years, I had the chance to attend Bruins opening night at TD Garden, the first home puck drop of the new season. Not only did the night mark the start of a new chapter in Bruins history but major milestones for two Boston legends. Marking the 50th and 80th anniversaries of their Boston debuts respectively, two of the greatest Bruins to ever live, Bobby Orr and Milt Schmidt, made their way onto the ice after player introductions for the ceremonial puck drop. The oldest living Hall of Famer and former NHL player, Schmidt at 98 years strong made his Bruins debut (for context) the year the Hindenburg caught fire and Margaret Mitchell's Gone With...
