NHL Players Tweet Their Goodbyes

With the tumultuous early days of this year’s Free Agent Frenzy now behind us, recently moved players are beginning to adjust to their new organizations as fans still lament their departures. In years past, if a player wished to show their gratitude to a former fan base or organization they were limited to mainly newspapers as their only outlet to express their appreciation. However, in today’s modern world, technology and more importantly social media, has made it possible for fans and players to be closer than ever in terms of communication.

Although not everyone chooses to participate, many players around the NHL have turned to twitter to help build stronger relationships with fans as well as opening their lives up to the public. It is through this social media revolution that players can now openly express their thanks when their time with a club has expired.

Obviously with all of the chaos that comes with free agency, many players have changed area codes within the past week and said goodbye to the organizations they once called home. After scouring twitter for a while I have compiled a list of farewell tweets from some of the NHL’s recently moved skaters.
