Guess who got their Instagram account back?

A few days ago, I wrote about losing our Instagram account, how annoying it is for us as a community, and what you guys could do to help us try to get it back. Well, after literally hundreds of tweets and Instagram posts asking to #FreeOfficialoilersnation, we got a notification this morning that our account…


We’re the champs of getting our social accounts shut down

For the second time in under a year, your friendly neighbourhood hockey blog is going up against a giant social media company to try and get one of our accounts back. Last time, Twitter shut us down without so much as a hint as to why and that exact same thing happened again just this…


Happy birthday, Connor!

Happy 23rd birthday, Connor! People usually don’t like you when you’re 23, but come on — everybody likes Connor McDavid.


Trade Bait

When I first started working at the Nation, Wanye and I put together a survey to give you guys a voice in how we do things around here. Now, six years and many changes later, it’s time to dust off the ol’ survey machine to get your thoughts on how we’re doing.


Nation Brunch Party presented by The Canadian Brewhouse

After having so much fun at the Season Launch Party a couple of weeks ago, we decided that we should probably throw another all-ages event with our friends at The Canadian Brewhouse as a means of getting the Nation together. One of the best parts of this job is getting together and meeting with the…


The 2019 Season Launch Party presented by The Canadian Brewhouse

After another long, playoff-less summer, a brand new hockey season is peeking out of its wrapper and we wanted to throw a party to kick things off as an offering to the hockey gods as we begin our quest to get back into the playoffs. My friends, it’s time for the season opener party again…


Remembering Dad

Nineteen is one of my favourite numbers. There is no special reason other than I like how it looks, and I wore it a few years in hockey. I was 19 when I met my first girlfriend. I also bought my first vehicle; a 1982 Ford EXP when I was 19. It was a good…
