The New Hockey Fan's Guide to the NHL

If you have clicked on this article, you probably fit into one of the following categories:

1. You are an NBA fan who has had it up to here with your sport not solving the problems that are keeping them off the court.

2. You are an MLB fan who is bored in the offseason even with all the trade talk and rumors about where Albert Pujols is playing this week.

3. You are already a diehard NHL fan, but are trying to introduce one of your confused relatives or friends to the sport you have loved for practically your whole life.

4. Try as you might, you think the NFL is kind of lame (and honestly, I agree).

So, whatever type you are, welcome! I am happy to introduce you to the world of the NHL and what you should know as you grow your passion for hockey.

Now, don't worry. This is not going to be me reciting the NHL rule book with all the excitement of watching paint dry. No—this is going to be way more fun than that.

I'm going to show you what makes hockey so great, as well as teach you some basic hockey fan etiquette should you decide to go see hockey in person (and if you haven't, well, what are you waiting for?).

Once you start clicking, there's no ignoring the excitement, so if you're really ready to become a hockey fan, keep reading!
