As I have mentioned to you before, I was once the copy editor and a contributor to the excellent New York Rangers fan publication, Blueshirt Bulletin.
It is my pleasure to introduce Daniel Akeson, the man at the helm of Blueshirt Bulletin. He was kind enough to take some time and tell us how he got into hockey/the Rangers, how he got involved in hockey as a writer/blogger, his role (s) at Blueshirt Bulletin as well as his current thoughts on the team:
PH: How did you get into hockey?
DA: I, like many who love the sport, grew up with it. My family was heavily involved with it. My grandfather recalls the old Gardens in the city and watching not only the Rangers, but the Metro League games as well. Aside from playing, he coached youth hockey and when he moved out of the city and into Long Island, was influential in beginning several of the youth hockey programs that are still around today. When the Islanders expanded, he also worked with them to promote the club and get them involved with many of the community programs. In addition to that, my Uncle and Father both played and coached and continue to today. You could say I’ve grown up with it from all angles.
