Editorial: BC Welcomes Back the NHL

in Blog

There was an overwhelming sense of relief amongst the hockey community on Sunday morning with the announcement of the NHL’s return.

While we at BC Hockey Hub are passionate about the game of hockey at the amateur level, we recognize and appreciate that this game we love is driven by what happens at the top of the food chain. We are anxious to see just what the upcoming NHL season will bring.

We follow a lot of hockey obsessed people on our Twitter account (@bchockeyhub). Here are some great quotes that show just how pumped up BC hockey players, coaches and fans are to see their favourite teams heading back to the ice:
