History Ph.D. and diasporic Bruins fan living in D.C. Writer for Stanley Cup of Chowder on SBNation, mostly bringing the Bruins/Boston hockey history.

I've been writing about sports history for several years, and blogging about it since 2012. I'm interested in the historical relationship between society and sports (specifically hockey) and in how American sports fandom has evolved over the last century.

I can be found on the Twitters at @ecozens for more on hockey, history, and hockey history (with a good dose of talk about wine, as well).
