NHL Social Media Guide

NHL fans have a time-honored tradition of loving, hating, congratulating and chirping their favorite players. During the NHL Draft this Sunday, Twitter will explode with new rookie Twitter handles as fans watch the future of their clubs form. There’s just one problem with NHL player accounts: their spelling, the fake accounts and the unverified accounts. How does someone know that a Twitter handle is actually their favorite player? Or how do they know they are chirping a real player and not a 14 year old kid in his basement? The NHL doesn’t release an official Twitter handle list, and most teams don’t even include a Twitter handle in their programs. Two-Way Hockey Blog stepped in to create what was lacking, a complete NHL social media/digital media guide for Player Twitter Handles. This list is a work in progress so feel free to comment and contribute. All accounts marked with an asterisk were not verified or didn’t have enough activity to confirm their account.
