Paul Bruno is not your average hockey fan. I am truly a student of the games the pros play. In analyzing the sport I developed an important innovation. In 1991, I approached the management of the Toronto Maple Leafs to present my idea for the tracking of numerous game events, like face-offs won and lost, blocked shots, hits, giveaways, takeaways and much more. This prototype was soon adopted by the NHL and is currently known as NHL Real Time Scoring.
I am proud to say that hockey, at all levels, is now reported, reviewed and studied with great use of this information.
Since 1996, I have been a member of the Society for International Hockey Research (SIHR) an international group of hockey researchers and historians whose objective is to study and preserve the history of hockey. Since 1998, I have been the Treasurer of this group, which includes members of NHL management, broadcasters, reporters and authors.
I have appeared on numerous radio and television shows in the role of hockey expert, fluent in the analysis of the game and in giving opinions about the current NHL landscape.
