I'm a student at one of the best hockey schools in the country, UND (former home of Ed Belfour, Mike Commodore and Jonathan Toews, among others). I'm working on a history degree and plan to become a sports historian. Even when I'm neck deep in homework and research I'm an obsessive hockey fan (and obsessive seems to be the key word here).
July and August are the two longest months of the year, and if it wasn't for hockey to keep me going, I'd have to say December and January would be the two absolutely worst months. It hovers around -12 and we get about 4 hours of daylight. There's a reason people from the north look pale and slightly unhinged at the end of winter.
When hockey isn't on tv or the radio, I'm either reading or knitting. Much like a squirrel, I'm always collecting books, yarn and shoes, except obviously squirrels collect nuts and I'm turning into one (a nut, that is). Hmmm...
I like to write in my spare time, and hockey history is usually my focus. Any era, any event, and odds are I know it. This is the reason why I'm not good at math. Yup, that's exactly it.
I'm a little insane from the papers, the cold, and the research, but I won't mind if you don't.
I am wirting an article on Howie Morenz and I was wondering if you could help send me in the right direction. You wrote "On March 8, 1937, the team physician, Dr. J.A. Hector Forgues, took x-rays of Morenz’s leg and discovered blood clots. He scheduled surgery for the next day." Could you please share with me how you got this information.Thanks for your time Alex

Hockey Hall of Famer Scott Stevens' career ended kind of awkwardly. In January of 2004 he missed a few games with the flu and then was diagonsed with Post-Concussion-Syndrome and missed the rest of the season. He would never play again as a lockout wiped out the following season and then his official retirement in September of 2005. Truly one of the greats and my favorite athlete of all-time, I don't feel I have ever honored him the way he earned and I really hope I did it with this article- http://bleacherreport.com/articles/172153-scott-stevens-forever-beloved-forever-hated-and-forever-remembered
Let me know what you think if you get a chance, if not no worries.
