Today is a new day at The Hockey Sentinel.

My name is Dan Mount and I’m the new editor here on this page.

For those that don’t know me, I was the NHL columnist over at and also do some work for New York Sports Scene. I’ve been a hockey fan since I was a young kid when the only games I could catch on TV was the Saturday night games on CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada.

I know it’s the middle of the summer, but it’ll be hockey season before you know it.

We’ll get you ready for the new season with all of the latest news coming from arbitration, roster moves and training camp with our new Twitter page (@Hockey_Sentinel) and Facebook pages.

We’ve also got some other cool stuff down the way as we’ll have a fantasy league pitting you the fans against some of our writers. I’ll try and come up with something for the winner or the highest placing fan-finisher.

I also plan on carrying over a few things from my days over at as I’ll start my Summer Spotlight series on the players, teams and coaches that have major storylines surrounding them for the upcoming season. I also plan on my in-depth division previews and doing my weekly three stars on the best, worst and absurd of the week.

I do want to hear from our readers as well. I welcome comments and debate from the public.

We’ve got a solid writer in Ryan Cowley of Make Way for the Kings, and I’m lining up a couple of writers as well that were with me at TJRSports.

We’re also looking for new members of our team. If you’ve got a passion for hockey, we’d love to have you. You can direct message me on Twitter, comment below or email at

In the meantime, sit back, relax and get ready for hockey season.

Dan Mount is the editor for The Hockey Sentinel and covers the Rangers, Devils and Islanders for
