HNIB News and MassHSHockey.com are pleased to announce the addition of Jim Clark to our staff for the upcoming High School/Prep School hockey season.
During a long tenure at the Boston Herald, Jim established himself as one of the most respected high school hockey writers in Massachusetts High School hockey circles in addition to his copy-editing duties there. His coverage of schoolboy hockey in Massachusetts with his In The Slot blog posts are well respected by coaches, players and fans alike.
Clark, who has covered Massachusetts HS Hockey since 2000, was the recipient of the Massachusetts State Hockey Coaches Association William Stewart Award this past year. The award is given annually to an individual for their contributions to high school hockey. Clark also was the 2006 recipient of the MSHCA’s Joel Perlmutter Award, given annually to a member of the media.
“We are thrilled to add Jim Clark to our staff,” said HNIBNews.com editor Gary Demopoulos. “Jim has been the preeminent Massachusetts high school hockey writer for a long time. He has the respect and trust of the coaching fraternity. We look forward to reading Jim’s coverage on HNIBNews.com.”
In addition to providing content and performing editorial duties for HNIBNews.com, Clark will also play an integral role in MassHSHockey.com, which begins its 12th year of being the go-to source for team schedules, rosters, stats and rankings for all Massachusetts HS Hockey teams.
HNIBNews.com has covered scholastic/prep school hockey throughout the New England region and New Jersey for several years.
