Puckhound's Blogs - Ron Saar and I were both Boston-area hockey graphers in the early 2000s. He even name-dropped me in a Beckett article ten-ish years ago when he was their writer on hockey autographs (issue #210, maybe?). He died suddenly and unexpectedly in 2016 while watching his son play hockey. Some of the info may be a tad outdated by now, but still certainly a worthwhile read.
