I've been meaning to write something on NHLers and Twitter for a few weeks now, an article that finally came together this weekend for The Globe. For whatever reason, hockey players are miles behind some of the stars in other sports when it comes to social networking, but there have been some gains the past few months and it looks like that's something we'll continue to see.
Perron, the 21-year-old winger from the Blues, is the player I focused on because he's easily been one of the most prolific players on there, answering hundreds of questions from fans since the season started. Here's a Q&A I did with him last week.
And, finally, here's the list of NHL players and personnel I came up with. If there are others I missed, let me know:
NHLers on Twitter: Colby Armstrong, Dan Boyle, Donald Brashear, Mike Commodore, Riley Cote, Patrik Elias, Dan Ellis, Eric Fehr, Bruno Gervais, Mike Green, Martin Havlat, Alex Ovechkin, David Perron, Alexander Steen, Steve Sullivan, Maxime Talbot, Brad Winchester, Brendan Witt
NHL staff on Twitter: Gary Bettman, Mike DiLorenzo
Agents on Twitter: Jay Grossman, Ben Hankinson, Chris McAlpine, Allan Walsh
