 I got into Hockey as a kid through playing the Sega Mega Drive games and originally supported the Pittsburgh Penguins. My Dad would regularly travel to Phoenix for work so when the Coyotes sprung up in 1996, allegiances had to change. 

Unfortunately, Hockey wasn’t shown in the UK and whenever I would visit Phoenix it was always out of season so in a pre-internet era my interest in the sport waned. That changed after a visit in March 2010 where I got to go to my first and so far only game at home against the Canucks. 2 hours and 7 goals I was hooked back in and the rest, as they say, is history. 

Thanks to an NHL TV subscription, highlights on YouTube (most of the games are on at 2am UK time and I like my sleep too much) and regular updates from the excellent Craig Morgan of AZ Coyotes Insider (@craigsmorgan) I’m able to follow them more so than ever before. 

Away from being a Yotes fan, I’m a freelance web designer by trade and in my free time can be found running along the Worthing coast, drinking Pinot Noir with my wife or finding an excuse to not do DIY
