Behind The Mask #7 | Jordon Marr: Fife Flyers

And we’re back! With the first Behind the Mask of the 2017-2018 season and with the Fife Flyers new netminder Jordan Marr. Jordan was so lovely to talk to and at times (with my husbands’ interjections with questions of his own) we got quite off the topic of hockey, which makes this exactly what it says on the tin- a behind the mask interview. We get to know the Jordan that not everyone gets to see – and thanks to mum Tracy, there will be some never before seen photos of both Jordan and little brother Renny!

RELEASE DAY BLITZ | Toni Aleo’s In The Crease Book Review

Jenson Monroe is everything you could ask for in a man and in a sports romance hero. He’s kind, caring, compassionate, loving… not to mention, he’s absolutely gorgeous with a model physique and abs even Adam Vay would be jealous of. He’s the best in his profession and his position and it would seem he has no flaws. Oh, and he’s the goalie for Toni Aleo’s fictional Nashville Assassins.

What does the NHL Expansion Draft mean for your favourite team? 

By now everyone should have heard about the NHL Expansion draft, what with the newly created Vegas Golden Knights on the hunt for a roster full of players, but what is an expansion draft?

Stewart: “Every game is a playoff game.” 

Brian Stewart is what some might call a veteran goalie in the Elite League. If you look through the lists of import goalies who come and play here, most only last a year and some, not even that. Following some of the interviews with the Elite League goalies this season, I can definitely see why that is the case.

Behind the Mask #6 | Ervins Mustukovs: Sheffield Steelers

Ervins Mustukovs, Latvian native and two time player for the Sheffield Steelers. The 32 year old netminder came back to Sheffield at the beginning of this season after being invited by coach Paul Thompson with an offer he couldn’t refuse.

Them Over there | Fife Flyer’s Ryan Dingle (#OnFire Repost)

When you type ‘Ryan Dingle’ into Google, not a great deal comes up. Elite Prospects, his Wikipedia entry and a couple of articles from the past summer about his re-signing with the Fife Flyers and earning the Captain’s C. Pretty much the usual suspects really and nothing that outwardly screamed ‘read me’. There doesn’t really seem to be much in the way of media surrounding the Steamboat Springs, USA native – which considering his role did throw me for a minute.

Meet Fleetwood Mac Jorgensen on National Puppy Day

A little while ago now, I asked some of the Coventry Blaze players about their furry family members and Jim Jorgensen was kind enough to share some photos with me of his adorable French Bulldog Fleetwood Mac. 

Baby Fleetwood, isn’t he adorable?! (Photo Credit: Jim Jorgensen)

So of course I asked Jim about this adorable little cutie! 

This photo is the first time that I had ever seen who would become Fleetwood Mac. We were playing in France that season and my coaches wife drove me to the breeders. She was my translator! Alekz was still back home so I had to send pics and obviously we both fell in love with him instantly. So Fleet is an authentic French Bulldog, but sadly left France before he learned any French. 

Do you have any furry companions? Share some of their baby pictures today with the hashtag #nationalpuppyday
