Slapshot Striptease - Just because.

Where does the time go?

Also... GO UAH CHARGERS!!!!!

This is just a short update to talk about a weekly column I'm writing for the website FROM THE RINK. FTR is part of SB Nation and staffed by some amazing hockey writers and an awesome editor, Mike Chen. I'm very honored to join their ranks. I'm covering the WHL for them right now. We'll see how things go.

Anyway, here's my latest offering for them:
