Hey I am Alex Bacon, a current student at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. I have lived my whole life in New Jersey, just outside of New York City so I grew up watching the Yankees, Devils, Rangers, Nets, Knicks, Giants, Jets, Mets, and Islanders. My favorite sport above all is hockey, I have been playing my whole life and continue to play today. My family has been Devils season ticket holders for as long as I can remember, so I guess you can say that hockey is in my blood.

During the summer of 2012 I participated in Bleacherreport's Internship Program, and now I am a Featured Columnist for the Devils.

Although I love writing, one day I wish to be in front of a camera. I am shooting for the stars, and Bleacherreport is providing me with the steps I need to take to one day be an on air sports analyst.

Feel free to follow me on Twitter @abacon55 to discuss anything having to do with sports. I love constructive criticism and am always willing to better myself, so if you have any suggestions, opinions or questions let me know.

Please take a second to like this page on Facebook for a close friend of mine. Sammie is a young girl with Batten disease and she loves to keep track of her like count on Facebook. The support really does help.

    Hey, Alex. I understand now. In that case, it's probably best to specify "59 goals for the Devils" just to avoid any confusion. Thanks, and keep up the good work!

    Will there be professional hockey this year or will it be a No Hockey League?

    Didn't know Adam Henrique played in the 2003 playoffs...and that you were there!

    I'd like to see you interview Chico and get his take on the NHL in the Bettman era.

    Hockey is dead. Long live hockey! The NHL should have taken the Bain deal.

    In regards to your recent article about the Royals. I agree that we are a deep team, but you need to solidify your facts before posting. Jose Mijares, while relatively young, was placed on waivers (because of philosophical differences) in August of this year and acquired by the San Francisco Giants. More importantly, Jonathan Broxton was traded to the Cincinnati Reds for relief pitcher Donnie Joseph and starting pitcher J.C. Sulbaran.

    As for the article. I agree with the entire thing. I don't mean to be the attacker or anything, but if the facts in your article aren't straight people will have a hard time believing in what you are saying.

    You write like you talk. Before I call you a sports writer, I would like to see your breakdown of the Stanley Cup with an explanation of why the Rangers will most likely win it. Thank you.
