My name is Ryan Blight, and I have been an editor for Arctic Ice Hockey since the Winnipeg Jets 2.0 came back to the River City. Prior to that, I was a contributor to Nucks Misconduct as the Manitoba Moose (AHL) blogger. I have proudly watched AIH grow by leaps and bounds every season since the return of the Jets, but am not willing to sugarcoat what I see occurring on the ice or in the boardroom. Avid fan of #fancystats and season-ticket holder since the Jets returned.

Sports & Health Editor of "The Manitoban" student newspaper at the University of Manitoba in 2003-04. Contributed to the Maple Street Press Jets Annual in 2011.
