IC’s Favourite Media Relations Coordinator Gets a Blog

Jen Sharpe, ex-Moose staffer and current Edmonton Oilers Media Relations guru, has her own blog on the Oilers website.

The 2008-09 season will be my fourth working in professional hockey. Though the learning curve was pretty steep at times, I’ve maneuvered through most of the hilly bits thanks to guidance from coworkers, Hockey DB, and the Google search bar. (Don’t try this at home or you just may end up working for a hockey team! The horror!)

There are lots of things I have yet to learn. For example, it would be really nice to be able to calculate GAA in my head or to perfect the tandem Zamboni navigation technique. (So synchronized! How do they do that?!) And firing a killer one-timer would be an excellent skill to acquire, if not for professional advancement then for show-off purposes alone.

Shooting skills aside, there are at least a couple of subjects I have a pretty solid grasp on. One of them is the AHL veteran rule (not entirely applicable at this level, but still good to know). Another is the sequence of events leading up to the season opener, which this season falls at home on October 12th vs. Colorado.

Best of luck Jen!
