Editor’s note: changes to our Thunderbirds coverage

710Sports.com’s coverage of the Seattle Thunderbirds will be much different this year.

We’ve hired two writers who will take on different roles. Andrew Eide will be the reporter, providing the latest news and game recaps. As the columnist, Tim Pigulski will share his opinions and analysis on the team.

Both Andrew and Tim are avid hockey fans and have followed the T-birds for some time. They’re looking forward to sharing with you their insight on the team specifically and the game in general. They will begin writing within the next week.

In addition to our new writers, we also plan to augment our coverage by using a few resources provided by the team. You’ll find more photos and video highlights of most games, which we haven’t utilized in the past.

Thanks for making 710Sports.com your source for T-birds coverage. You’ll enjoy the changes we’ve made.
