While many older fans would never think to do it, it’s ofter the younger ones that long to make contact with their on-ice idols. While professional hockey players are often placed on a pedestal of sorts, the fact remains that they’re some of the most down to earth individuals in all of sports and NHL players are always quick to appreciate fans of all ages for supporting them. Drawing photos, writing letters and hoping for an autograph is just a small piece to the support puzzle, especially when it stems from a younger fan.

So, you’ve got a fantastic drawing of Tuukka Rask, a poem owed to Dustin Brown, a note filled with questions for Eric Staal, and a son or daughter begging you to find a way to reach out to their idol, what do you do?

Most players are responsible for their own fan mail and more often than not, they hold that responsibility in the highest regard. While players aren’t required to respond, many often do, even if it takes them until the offseason to find the time. If you’re asking for an autograph, sending a hockey card or something small may aid the process, as will a pre-stamped, self addressed envelope. It isn’t always about asking for something though, often it’s about sending words of encouragement on the season, a hand drawn photo etc that may go without response, but not unappreciated.

Below is a list of each team and the address to send fan mail. We’re all fans, don’t be afraid to show it!
