It is my pleasure to present an e-mail interview I conducted with hockey reporter Christine Simpson.
Simpson, currently a reporter for the New Jersey Devils on MSG and big sister to Stanley Cup champion Craig Simpson, was kind enough to take time out of her hectic schedule to tell us about how she got into hockey, where she has worked in the hockey industry, and her thoughts on hockey broadcaster.
PH: How did you get into hockey?
CS: By accident. It started by growing up in Canada the middle sister between 2 hockey playing brothers. Dave was drafted by the New York Islanders and Craig by the Pittsburgh Penguins & went onto play for the Edmonton Oilers & Buffalo Sabres. As a kid I was dragged to arenas throughout the winters to watch them both play and little did I know that learning to love the game through them would help lead me to my professional career.
PH: Growing up, who was your favorite team and player? Why?
CS: Growing up in London, Ontario the Leafs were the team we’d see the most on Hockey Night in Canada. Favourite player though I’d always have to say were my brothers.
