Loyal Pink Puckers,
I started The Pink Puck in 2011 as a forum to create opportunity for passionate writers and hockey fans to find their voice and it’s become so much more that that. The Pink Puck has become a family, connecting fans across the world through words, photos, and articles. In the last six years since it’s inception, the site has become more than I could have ever dreamed of, most recently our being credentialed for the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang. It has allowed not only myself, but our contributors endless and often unimaginable opportunity, something that I’m thankful for each day. On the other end of the gratitude spectrum, life happens… there’s growth, change, closed doors, open windows and eventually new paths.
Perhaps you’ve noticed, maybe you haven’t, but I’ve been a missing face in the writers column. It seems as though creatively speaking, I was benched. While hockey will always hold a piece of my heart, the overwhelming pull to cover games, attend events and contribute has gotten lost along the way and that isn’t fair to our readers and daily supporters. I believe in putting your all into each project and post, something I’ve been unable to do for some time now. While I’ve been active behind the scenes, the day-to-day operations have been handled by our managing Editor-in-Chief, Rhonda McClure.
It is with a heavy, but excited heart that I announce my departure from The Pink Puck. I will undoubtedly continue to love, support and sing the site’s praises to every devoted hockey fan that I meet and even those that may not love hockey yet. You may even see an article here and there when creativity lights the lamp once again.
In the meantime, I leave you and this beautiful site in the extremely capable, knowledgeable, and passionate mitts of it’s new owner, Rhonda McClure!
It’s safe to say that I can’t wait to see what amazing hockey adventures the future has to hold.
May you be happy, healthy and live your life with grace and ease (especially during playoffs!).
Founder, The Pink Puck
