Every day we’re going to do our absolute best to bring you the top NHL reads from around the web.
Sometimes we’ll pull from larger sites like NHL.com, but for the most part the goal will be to sort through dozens of posts from more mid-range sites so you can see some things that maybe wouldn’t have made it onto your radar normally. If you like what these sites do then give them a follow on Facebook or Twitter, and share the content that you love!
Hockey fans make up one of the best communities around, and in a lot of ways, we’re all in it together.
Without further delay… your top posts for January 19, 2015.
