Feels like the first time with IIHF.com
Wednesday, 5 December 2007
I’ve been fortunate enough to work with the International Ice Hockey Federation at every World Championship and Olympics since 2000, writing and editing for the official web site. IIHF.com has just undergone a complete facelift as part of the organization’s 100th-year anniversary celebrations, and I’m happy to announce that I’ll be a contributing columnist for Version 2.0, alongside some other very talented and knowledgeable hockey writers such as Joeri Loonen, Bill Meltzer, Risto Pakarinen, and Andrew Podnieks.
Check out my first column for the new site, which, appropriately enough, focuses on some memorable firsts that I’ve personally witnessed in international hockey over the years.
If you need a little musical accompaniment, Foreigner is here to help.
On a separate but related note, it was great to see that Joe Pelletier of HockeyBookReviews.com picked World of Hockey as his #1 hockey book of 2007. Considering how many excellent titles were released in the last couple of months alone, it’s an honor for everyone who was involved in the publication of the IIHF’s centennial commemorative book. Joe puts a tremendous amount of time, research, and effort into HockeyBookReviews.com and his other sites, and really knows how to connect with his readers. Thanks again, Joe.
