NHL Director of Media Relations John Dellapina On Blogger Access

from Steph Greegor of The Other Paper,

...But, said Dellapina, the NHL, which has an open policy toward social media and bloggers, has not, and does not, intend to set league-wide policy for clubs.

“Nothing’s changed,” he said of NHL policies that, basically, give each individual NHL club a significant amount of discretion in who gets credentialed. It also does not define or ban any one particular form of media, he said, adding. “Nothing new has been implemented.”

What happened, said Dellapina, is that because the media landscape is changing from traditional print and electronic media outlets to more Internet-based outlets such as bloggers and individual fan sites, the NHL had a discussion with P.R. folks that tried to define, as a guideline, what is an acceptable rule of thumb for credentialing bloggers.
