“This group has been working incredibly hard since they agreed to join the site’s editorial staff. I’m so proud of the work we have done together to rebrand our website, layout a clear path forward for our coverage, as well as add writers and photographers to our staff,” said Matthew Harding, Editor-in-Chief for The Sin Bin. “There is a lot of work yet to accomplish, but this group clearly defines the second chapter of The Sin Bin, one where we will work day and night to cement ourselves as the authority on complete minor league hockey news.”
