My name is William Fitzpatrick but you can call me Billy. I have been covering the Colorado Avalanche for The Hockey Writers since Dec. 2020. I'm from Long Island, New York and recently earned my master's degree in journalism from Hofstra University. I have been around hockey for most of my life as a fan and as a player. I have covered the sport during my time at SUNY Oswego as well as interning with the National Women's Hockey League's Metropolitan Riveters. Currently I am working as a production assistant with MSG Networks where I work on feature segments with the New York Rangers.
