“The Hockey Writers provide the tools to succeed in pursuing a career in sports writing. THW gave me the opportunity to cover the 2015 All-Star Weekend in Columbus, which included privileged access to NHL players and coaches throughout the weekend.” – Andy Dudones, former THW Contributor
“The Hockey Writers provided me with the opportunity to cover some Calgary Flames games from the Press Box this season!” – Ryan Pike, credentialed THW contributing editor
“Athletes talk all the time about how playing with the best encourages them to elevate their games, and the same axiom applies to The Hockey Writers. Without the push I’ve gotten from this site, my writing would’ve stayed stagnant and I never would’ve gotten opportunities like writing for NBC .” – James Neveau, NBC Chicago
“During my time with THW I have taken the next step in my writing career; because of the success of the website I secured a full-season media pass in New Jersey. I have learned so much from the other writers & have made some great friends along the way as well. It’s an honor to work with such a talented group.” – Dan Rice, credentialed Devils contributor
“I was given the chance to cover a record breaking event in the 2014 NHL Winter Classic at Michigan Stadium. It was a learning experience, an eye opening chance to interact with players and coaches as well as market The Hockey Writers and market myself.”- Andrew Forbes, THW Contributor
