So, I'm going to be featured in an upcoming issue of The Hockey News

Just got off the phone with someone at The Hockey News. They're going to run a little piece on me and my collection in an upcoming issue. Doubt it will be an article..likely just a blurb or something as a companion piece to a separate article. But yeah, pretty cool. They want me to send then some photos tonight.

This is actually a pretty big deal for me, as I've been a THN collector for years and read them religiously when they were in newspaper format back in the day. Just the potential of being mentioned in an issue has me pretty excited, because THN was a big part of my life growing up, as corny as that may sound.

So yeah, likely not a big deal to anyone else, and I have no idea how it will turn out, but i figure I'd mention it!

Love it... congrats man.
I always like your blasts from the past when going over old issues on the history forum. Anyway, that's pretty cool.

For what it's worth, my favourite section of the Hockey News used to be the who's better section... They always had interesting match-ups like Tochett vs. Kevin Stevens or Pat Verbeek vs. Ray Ferrero...

You'll probably get calls from psychiatrists trying to ascertain why you buy garbage every month.


Nonetheless, congrats man. Rep HFBoards, or GTFO

I remember some of your threads about your collection. Those newspaper print copies are badass.

Honestly, enjoy it man. You're like free advertising for them right now. Devoted subscriber with a badass collection. Hope they give you a year free or something!

Hah, thanks fellas! I'll see about posting a few pics tonight after the wife snaps a few photos.

Again, not really sure what to expect. Could just be a few quotes and a picture. But still cool nonetheless.

I've been in contact with Jason Kay (editor-in-chief) over the years in regards to some questions I'd have about publishing dates, special magazine info for my collection etc.. He knew about my collection and I guess they thought it would be neat to put a little blurb in the magazine.

Took a pic of my collection. Keep in mind this is THN related stuff and not my complete hockey collection. I believe at last count they came up to well over 2 thousand issues.

Not the best quality as I took it with my phone and the lighting wasn't ideal.
