Players All Over The World

from Chris Gigley of ESPN The Magazine,

Like every other hockey fan in North America, Kevin Hibma has had about enough of the NHL lockout. 

But unlike most -- if not all -- hockey fans, Hibma, 31, is a geoprocessing product engineer at a mapping software company. 

Last week, he vented his frustration in a creative way. 

Getting Ice Time, which launched last Friday, is the result of nearly 25 hours of research Hibma did on his own time. 

The online map tracks the migration of NHL players to Europe as the lockout wears on. Using the technology of his employer, Redlands, Calif.-based Esri, he made something that looks a lot like those airline routing maps in the back of in-flight magazines, but is a lot more dynamic.
