I joined TheHockeyWriters in January 2012 while serving as a St. Louis Blues media member during the 2011-12 season. Currently, fellow THW writer Mike Poepping and I host the Blues Face Off Show, found on KSDK.com, St. Louis' No. 1 source for news. I am also a Blues media member for the 2014-15 season.
