While I’ll be ramping up posts on this site again soon, I thought I’d give another option to those who prefer to read about hockey documents only. My new site PuckDocuments.com is already live, with some of the same content you see here. Also, please give me a follow at Twitter.com/Puckdocuments. Thanks to everyone who continues to check this site out.
