FAVORITE HOCKEY MOMENT: As cliche as it is, every new moment I have in hockey (in my career and as a fan) has been amazing. You just can't beat a night at the rink (cheering, playing, coaching etc.)

BIO: What started as a way to help her friend impress a date, has transformed into a lifestyle for Jessi. Realizing that she could turn her passion for sports and writing into a career, she forged full-steam ahead to make that career a reality.

A former Cyclone, Jessi embraced hockey in any aspect she could, taking over as head of
media relations of the ACHA Cyclone Hockey team. Between play-by-play, press releases and hosting the most-watched local hockey TV show, "The Al Murdoch Show" she knew hockey was the sport of choice (being from Minnesota, how could it not be?).

Her NHL aspirations have moved her around the country, working with USA Hockey Magazine, Fox Sports North and as assistant sports editor in New York where she covered DI lacrosse and the AHL Syracuse Crunch.

After seeing both coasts, she realized that if you want the mecca of hockey, you have to be in Land of 10,000 rinks and relocated back to the Twin Cities to work with Touchpoint Media and reunite with clients such as USA Hockey, Minnesota Hockey and Massachusetts Hockey.

This past season her dreams became reality as an correspondent covering all Minnesota Wild home games and visiting teams at Xcel Energy Center.

College hockey remains her top passion, keeping this blog alive when she can. Enjoy!
