Declan Schroeder is a 24-year-old freelance journalist in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He holds a diploma in Creative Communications with a major in journalism from Red River College and a bachelors in Rhetoric and Communications from the University of Winnipeg. A lifelong Winnipegger, he's deeply rooted in the city's hockey culture. The original Jets skipped town when he was only 2, so he latched onto the Maple Leafs pretty hard throughout his childhood and teen years — he's only semi-reformed. When the Jets and Leafs play each other these days, he cheers for the game to go to overtime. His favourite player as a kid was Darcy Tucker and his favourite player now is Mark Scheifele. An upgrade? You decide.
