Hidden Gem Blog of the Day

It belongs to Wilkes-Barre Scraton's own, Ben Lovejoy.

Lovejoy is an interesting story; he went un-drafted but has pretty good size and is a stay-at- home type defenseman. He scratched and clawed his way onto the AHL roster in training camp and has carved out a pretty good niche in that lineup.

Lovejoy's blog is hilarious, especially the latest edition where he roasts a bunch of his teammates. A first reaction might be to say he's "well spoken, for a hockey player", but please, dude graduated an Ivy League school we'd expect he knows how to form a sentence or two.

It's always interesting to see the way professional hockey players interact with each other, especially in the AHL where most the players are so young and there's a light-hearted and carefree vibe in the air.

So check it out, you're guaranteed to have a chuckle or two and learn a little more about the personalities of some of the boys, not just the players that play.
