I'm the managing editor of TonightsHealthyScratches.com, one of the fastest growing hockey blogs on the Bloguin network. At THS, myself, fellow former B/R writer Frank Castaldi and Brian McCormack tackle all the headlines around the NHL and international hockey in a number of ways.

I graduated from Hofstra University with a degree in Journalism in May 2010. I started writing for Bleacher Report back in 2007, and used to write on here about the teams I support, the Yankees, Rangers, University of Michigan and any team representing the USA.

Some people studied math, science or philosophy in college. I studied sports. I live it, I breathe it. And I fully intend on making a career out of it. I realized when I was 14 I wasn't going to be the next Yankees' great center fielder, so I figured I'd write about them. Luckily for me, I'm good at it.

I consider myself a student of the game, especially baseball and hockey. I'm always trying to come up with the angles nobody's thought of about a particular story, rather than just blending in with the crowd. I enjoy studying the finer points of the game, instead of the big events.

With over three years of professional experience in sports media through various means, I'm someone worth listening to. Check out TonightsHealthyScratches.com and you'll see what I mean.

    I'm a hockey fan first and a Rangers fan second. Bias shouldn't prevent me from providing accurate analysis.

    It is in your best interest not to argue with Mr. Controversy. He's not very bright.

    Thanks for the fast edit, Mike. I think we can agree that Henderson doesn't need to end up at OSU.

    i knew about Luongo, but since it is unofficial (and not germane to the article) i did not mention it.

    thanks again for your work!
