If you are a hockey fan, than you are probably following your favorite sport in a number of different ways.
May be you are one that watches the games on television, listens to the game on the radio, purchases the NHL Center Ice package for your family’s television, buys the NHL GameCenter Live package for your computer, or follows everything by hopping online and checking out all the hockey blogs, hockey beat writers, and so on and so forth.
Believe it or not, folks, there is another way and it is three words: NHL Home Ice.
This outlet is dedicated to hockey like no other. The hosts are not only some of the most knowledgeable hockey people out there, but they are also true fans of the game we all know and love.

The show’s producer for the last six seasons, Shawn Lavigne, a.k.a. “Big Country”, announced this morning that he is leaving the show and the channel for a new job as a producer at the start-up TSN Radio.
If you’re a fan of the show, than you know how big of a loss this is. “Big Country” was a hard worker who along with Mike Ross (Rossy) and Aron Papernick (The Paper Boy), delivered the goods every morning. He was funny, loved the band Abba and was a sad fan of the Ottawa Senators.
I would like to take this time to thank Shawn for always agreeing to stop by the Goal Line Report and give us his thoughts and for also allowing me to blog for the NHL Home Ice web site from 2008-09. It was an absolute pleasure to listen to you each and every morning and we at the Goal Line Report and Kukla’s Korner wish you nothing but the best at your new job.
Keep it real, Big Country!
If you’re an avid NHL Home Ice listener, than you may know the host that I recently completed an e-mail interview with.
His name is Aron Papernick but you may know him as the “Paperboy” from Hockey This Morning. Aaron was kind enough to take time out of his busy schedule to tell us about how he got into hockey, how he got his gig at NHL Home Ice as well as his predictions regarding the Toronto Maple Leafs.
PH: How did you get into hockey?
AP: All Torontonians are born watching the Toronto Maple Leafs. Whether that counts as “hockey” is debatable. I grew up watching the Leafs in Harold Ballard’s horrible 80s when the only good thing on the ice was Wendel Clark’s moustache.
PH: Growing up, who was your favorite team/player?
AP: I’ve always looked up to the Leafs’ recent captains and held them in high regard as my favourite player: Wendel Clark, Doug Gilmour, and Mats Sundin. All three led the team with grit, heart, skill, emotion, and as best a playoff performance as they could muster.
