Welcome to the new Nailers Now page from Pittsburgh Sports Monger for the 14-15 ECHL season. The idea behind this page is to add more to the existing coverage of the team on the Pittsburgh branch of the SportsMonger.com chain.
I have covered the Nailers for Pittsburgh Sports Monger each of the last two seasons, also occasionally getting to write about the Nailers’ NHL affiliate Pittsburgh Penguins and defending Atlantic Hockey Association champion Robert Morris Colonials on occasion.
Some of what you can expect from this page on top of the regular game stories will be preview pieces, breaking down roster moves, player profiles, feature pieces, analysis/opinion, breaking down the standings, looks around the league, and updates on affiliates/Nailers playing for an affiliate.
Expect the page to evolve and develop, as well as that list to change and/or grow as the season goes along and I have time to try and experiment with things. As always, suggestions are welcomed, so if there is something you want to see, let us know!
The Nailers opened training camp last week and played a pair of preseason games this past weekend, so hockey season in finally upon us.
Opening night is this Saturday at 7:35 against the Reading Royals.
Looking forward to a great season!
