Chasing the Puck was launched in early 2016, as a place for Ice Hockey fans in the U.K. to get to know more about some of their favourite players and is quickly growing into a place for fans from all over the world.
If you love Ice Hockey and everything even tenuously related to the beautiful game, you’ll be right at home here. Regardless of the team you support, there is something for everyone.
Here you’ll find out more about the players with interviews that go beyond merely talking about Ice Hockey. The Behind the Mask series is my first real go at getting to know the goalies of the Elite League and one I am personally enjoying producing for you all.
I don’t profess to be an expert at Hockey but I love getting to know the people who pull on our team colours and play with such passion. Interviewing is something I’ve always been good at and overcoming my fear of talking to new people is part of why I chose to start this blog. It took me out of my comfort zone and in so doing, it has opened up a whole new world to me that is as fast and exciting and ever evolving as the game itself.
This site was started as a place to showcase what I can do, journalistically speaking.
To leave a lasting impression on potential job prospects in this field now – and in the future. It came about after a particular game in which I got to meet and chat to one of the Coventry Blaze defensemen, Josh Godfrey.
I spoke to him about his past, where he’d come from in both a professional and personal capacity and when I was finished speaking with him I felt I wanted to share what I had learned with other fans, thus Chasing The Puck was born.
