When I wrote about The Path Forward for 100 Degree Hockey a few weeks ago, I was overwhelmed with the outpouring of support for the site from everyone, from team employees to regular, everyday fans. Several people also raised their hand to join as staff writers, and today I’m proud to introduce Asher Rohm.
Due to his location in Ohio, Asher will be covering mostly away games for the site. You’ve already read something from him earlier this week when he wrote about Jacob Peterson’s assignment to Texas.
Here are a few things about Asher in his own words:
I am excited to be joining the 100 Degree Hockey team. I live in Ohio but have been raised as a Texas sports fan since I was a newborn. My father was born in Dallas, and some of my most vivid memories growing up are from watching Dallas sporting events with him.Even though I had seen a few games in the past, I was truly introduced to hockey as a kid when I stumbled across an overtime NHL playoff game. I recall watching the 2014 Stanley Cup Finals and being captured by how thrilling the games were, especially the ones that went to overtime. Game 5 of the series ended up in 2OT and Alec Martinez finished off a rebound goal to clinch the Stanley Cup for the LA Kings. From that point on, I was hooked on hockey, and I began following the NHL closely. I quickly learned while watching games that hockey is a beautiful sport in both regulation and OT.Being raised a Dallas sports fan, of course, includes a passion for the Dallas Stars and Texas Stars. To now write for 100 Degree Hockey and cover the Texas Stars is something for which I am very grateful.I am looking forward to being along for the ride this year and beyond with a goal of providing helpful and insightful coverage throughout.
You can find Asher on Twitter @asherrohm. His first postgame will be Tuesday, November 2nd as Texas travels to Colorado.
