I grew up just outside Chicago, came up as a Blackhawks fan (much like Frank), and idolized just about every goaltender in the NHL on some level. However, I describe myself as a hockey fan above all else. It doesn’t matter who is playing, or what level, I simply love the game of hockey. Following the Panthers was a natural choice upon moving to South Florida.

I especially love the history of the game. There are so many interesting stories out there to discover. You never know what you might learn, or how certain events influenced the future of the game. Taking this journey through the history of the game is something I both feel compelled to do and enjoy immensely.

I previously wrote for another Florida Panthers blog called The Sunshine Skate, which included a stint as Managing Editor.
