Earlier this afternoon, I was lucky enough to receive answers to an e-mail interview I did with David Pagnotta of The Fourth Period. If you don’t know this already, The Fourth Period is a terrific hockey web site/magazine that is worth checking out on a daily basis.
David was kind enough to take time out of his busy schedule and tell us about how he got into the game, how he started The Fourth Period and his current thoughts on surprising teams/players this year.
PH: How did you get into hockey?
DP: I was never a great player. I knew there wasn’t any hope in hell that I was good enough to take my game to the next level. That sucked, but I wanted to get into the game somehow. I figured, if I could do it on the ice, I might as well give it a shot off it. I got involved in hockey about 10 years ago when I started TFP. I really got it going for fun; I was still in school and I really could care less about most of my classes. I still did the work, but hockey was a priority. I was also an off-ice official in the OHL, and being that close to the game got my juices flowing even more. After noticing that more and more people kept visiting, I expanded it. I started interviewing scouts, GMs and players and they actually called me back. In fact, Scott Howson was the first to call back when he was working with the Edmonton Oilers. One thing led to another and it took off.
