How can you, a hockey lover, be near your favorite team? Is it possible to greet your favorite hockey player almost ever day? Can you watch your team work out and hear the coach shout tips and other sayings across the ice? There might be a chance that you can do that and much more.

As a writer for this site I visit different websites to update on everything ‘hockey’. This way I don’t miss out on interesting tidbits of news and mayhem. Well, (for something to do) I just pressed the word ‘jobs’ on the NHL site. Lo and behold, a gold mine was placed before me! A secret of massive proportions was staring me in the face.

Right in front of me were jobs that need to be filled by the teams themselves. That’s right. You can apply to your favorite team for a job already posted or you can send in your resume for up coming jobs. Wow! I always thought that you needed to go to the ice rink, try to find ‘the guy’ and beg him to take your resume. I didn’t think it was so easy! Right now at this very minute teams like the Pittsburgh Penguins, Boston Bruins, Edmonton Oilers, Vancouver Canucks and many more are looking for people with different skills. Even the NHL has job openings.

You can stay in your job that you have had for years or you can take a leap and think about life working alongside your favorite team. Talk it out with your friends, parents and of course your soul mate. ( if you want them still to be your soul mate, you would?) Then spin the dice!

What an ice breaker?

Guy 1- ‘so man, what do you do for a living?’

Guy 2- ‘well, I got a job working with my favorite hockey team’

What a conversation starter, you can be the life of any party!

So, next time you are thinking about changing jobs, then look on the NHL website! You never know! Good luck!

Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, her team is always the Toronto Maple Leafs. Instead of falling for movie stars, Rochelle fell for hockey players. As she grew up, her passion grew to include wanting to be the first female NHL player, the first female 'water' girl for her team and catching a true NHL puck. She did try for the puck, only to learn that A) the puck could have killed her, if she tried to get it or B) you needed to buy one. Years later Rochelle still loves the game! Now a days instead of wanting to join the players, (don't let her fool you, she still wants to join the team) she writes about them. Her one wish in the world is to be alive when the Toronto Maple Leafs win their next Stanley Cup! Rochelle has a certificate in Marketing/Communications at the British Columbia School of Technology and a writing certificate from Simon Fraser University. She has started her own writing company, "From Rochelle's Pen".
