“I learned a great deal about writing in my time with The Hockey Writers. The tremendous support and teamwork the group offers help to motivate and improve your writing. I have had doors opened for me that would never have been available if not for the exposure and the respect that The Hockey Writers has in the hockey community.”
– Andrew Eide, Sportsnet.ca, 710 ESPN Seattle
“The Hockey Writers provided me with the opportunity to cover some Calgary Flames games from the Press Box this season!” – Ryan Pike, former credentialed THW contributor
“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, former credentialed Devils contributor
