Sports Illustrated made a few enemies today by using the term “Puck Bunny” to refer to female hockey fans. A lot of ladies will probably take offense to that terminology… myself included. Hockey Broad’s “Open Letter” to SI says it best, absolutely worth the read!

A brief rundown of the situation courtesy of Puck Daddy over at Yahoo Sports:

Winter was hooked on hockey by age 6, when she first witnessed a bench clearing brawl between the Boston Bruins and the Ottawa Senators. Growing from hockey fan to hockey player, Winter followed her passions by founding The Pink Puck. While she also loves fashion and the outdoors, hockey will always be her center ice.
