Geoffrey joined Broad Street Hockey in June 2009. He is a graduate of Drexel University School of Law after graduating with a bachelor's degree in History and Political Science from the University of Pittsburgh in 2008. Currently, Geoff lives in Fairfax, Va after growing up in Quakertown, Pa, 15 minutes south of Allentown.

As the degree suggests, Geoff is a huge political junkie. Anything you want to know about our 44 Presidents, Geoff most likely knows it. If you're curious, his favorite is James Knox Polk.

BSH Fantasy Hockey returns for 2013-14


The hugely popular Broad Street Hockey Fantasy Hockey League is back after a lockout-shortened year. The shortened year presented many challenges, including some leagues drafting in September, the...

Matt Carle v. Ryan Suter through 47 games


Do you see anything here to change the original thesis* of: "The two are not the same player, despite achieving similar results. Both men help their team spend more time in the offensive zone. Both men help their team outscore the opposition. Both men look fantastic when playing next to Pronger/Weber. Both men are looking at a very large payday this summer. Both men are less than physical defensemen. Both men have a fair amount of turnovers. But Suter is better at suppressing shots while Carle is better at generating offense." Me neither. * found here: http://www.broadstreethockey.com/2012/3/2/2830998/philadelphia-flyers-matt-carle-ryan-suter-nhl-free-agency-2012

After getting lost in the woods, I built a cabin


As many have probably noticed, I am no longer compiling the morning links. The reasons are many, and simple: I'm happier without hockey.

Friday Fly By: Packing for a late camping trip


Getting ready for Flyers camp, talking about mending lockout wounds, a couple DGB posts and a hilarious except from Sean Pronger's book.

Thursday Fly By: Hey you guys, Luongo rumors!


On a day of multiple call ups, Luke Schenn and Jakub Voracek are your profiles from Voorhees. Also, Giroux wearing the 'C' and Luongo rumors to to satisfy the appetite.

Wednesday Morning Fly By: Joy seen in Voorhees


Players returned to the SkateZone in good spirits and writers were there to capture it.

Tuesday Morning Fly By: Finally actual hockey talk


The Flyers are arriving in camp, though there are still injury concerns. Lubomir Visnovsky still doesn't want to go to the Islanders, plus some lockout humor.

Monday Morning Fly By: Party in the streets!


Lots of news, but all that matters is the lockout is over.

Friday Fly By: The lockout painfully drags on


The threat of disclaimer of interest remains, though Teemu Selanne is optimistic. Meet Jeff Dimmen, reunite with Paul Ranheim and acquaint yourself with Marcel Noebels.

Thursday Fly By: Opening against the Pens is fun


Imagine an opening night against the Penguins, then remember we're still in a lockout. Sorry.

Wednesday Morning Fly By: Marcel Noebels recalled


Marcel Noebels joins the Phantoms in time for the new year.

Tuesday Morning Fly By: Happy New Year!


Welcome to 2013. The Phantoms fell in a shootout, England has supplemental discipline controversy, the NHL and NHLPA meet to try and end their bickering and more.

Monday Morning Fly By: Miss those New Year's Eves


Happy New Year's Eve! Hopefully 2013 will be better than 2012.

Friday Morning Fly By: Another holiday weekend!


Updates from Phantoms practice, recaps of Team USA's 8-0 defeat of Germany and some dreaded CBA discussions.

Thursday Fly By: In Canada, a 9-3 win is sloppy


Canada defeated Germany in the World Junior Championships, 9-3, and is still called sloppy and disappointing. Canada, man.

Wednesday Morning Fly By: Holiday hangover


Slowly returning from holiday.

Tuesday Morning Fly By: Hope Santa left us hockey


Naturally, not much written yesterday. The NHL gets holiday cheer returned and a weekly update on Flyers' prospects. Hope you have a lovely day with your families.

Monday Morning Fly By: Happy Holidays from BSH!


Amazing weekend sweep for Phantoms, TItans and Royals. Happy Holidays indeed.

Friday Morning Fly By: Happy Festivus weekend!


I got a lotta problems with you people!

Thursday Morning Fly By: Actual injury updates


Paul Holmgren updated the status of several injured Flyers, including Andreas Lilja, Andrej Meszaros and Marc-Andre Bourdon, the Phantoms beat the IceCaps last night, and more stories from around...

Wednesday Fly By: The NHL is less popular than BP


Updates from Phantoms practice, bad polling data on the NHL's popularity, and more depressing lockout articles.

Tuesday Morning Fly By: Analyzing the NHL lawsuit


Chatting with Mike Testwuide and Jason Akeson for those who like hockey and analyzing the NHL's complaint against the NHLPA for those who like wild scenarios of ending the lockout.

Monday Fly By: Recapping minor league action


The Phantoms went 0-2, Trenton went 2-0-1 and Penn State dropped their only game of the weekend.

Friday Fly By: A little crazy is good for you


Robert Esche, Jeremy Roenick, Mark Cuban and the Oilers are enough crazy for everyone.

Thursday Morning Fly By: Missing Santa Sacks


Rather than laughing at Santa Sacks commercials, we're lamenting Matt Ford's lack of production in the AHL and looking forward to the World Juniors.

Wednesday Fly By: Mediators return to CBA talks


Ben Holmstrom is back in Philly to see the doctor, Mike Eruzione's 'Miracle' jersey is for sale, a lawyer is thinking about suing the NHL and more European football deas for the NHL to adopt.

Tuesday Fly By: Too soon to think about the Draft


Catching up on college hockey to avoid more lockout anger.

Monday Fly By: Remembering Ron Hextall's goal


Recapping the Phantoms' 1-1-1 weekend, awaiting details on Ben Holmstrom's injury and celebrating the 25th anniversary of Ron Hextall's goal.

Friday Fly By: Another false cry of wolf by NHL


Perhaps you can look at the most recent proposals and explain what was so offensive that required one side to get up and leave instead of continuing to negotiate.

Thursday Fly By: All podium, all the time


Optimism in negotiations, Baby Schenn wears a mic, defense in the A and Ellen Etchingham loves awful goalies.
