NHL on Twitter: #hockeyisback

The much-awaited start of this year’s @NHL season is Saturday. That’s right, puck fans, #hockeyisback. When the news was first announced earlier this month, fans were so excited that there were more tweets about the NHL than during the final Stanley Cup game last season. As the new season kicks off with 13 games on opening day, Twitter will be your all-access pass to follow the action on and off the ice.

To ensure that you don’t miss a thing, check out these lists from @NHL to follow your favorite players and teams this season. You can even interact with your favorite mascot!

This season you can also tweet to your favorite NHL fantasy expert and get real time answers to questions about who to start and more. Make sure to follow: @NHLFantasy, @NHLQubes, @NHLJensen and @NHLFeldman.

The fans aren’t the only ones pumped to get the season started: players and teams have been tweeting their excitement to get back on the ice.

The @LAKings, the defending Stanley Cup champs, are especially ready to get back to the ice and raise their victory banner:

Whether you’re tweeting #BlueshirtsAreBack or #LongLiveTheNote, all NHL fans on Twitter are counting down the minutes until #hockeyisback.
