Welcome to Devils Advocates!
My name is Vishal Hussain, and I am a graduate of the College of Sports Media in Toronto Ontario, Canada. I have been trained by some of the best names in the Canadian sports media industry, including Hockey Night in Canada’s Elliotte Friedman, former TSN and Sportsnet news anchor, Jim Van Horne, Sportsnet the Fan 590’s Roger Lajoie, and many more.
With Tom Gulitti’s departure to become a national writer for the NHL, and NJ.com’s decision to pare back Devils coverage to pay per click coverage, there has been a void in reliable Devils information. I am to fill that void with every day updates on your favorite NHL team.
Vishal, if you live in Toronto, why the New Jersey Devils?
The answer comes down to two words: Martin Brodeur. I have been a Brodeur fan my entire life, and when I entered the journalism field, my goal was to one day interview the man Devils fans call “Marty”
And in August of 2015, I was able to accomplish just that, when Brodeur phoned in to my radio station, Ontariosportsradio.com to do a 20 minute interview.
I have covered two NHL drafts, three NHL Draft Combines, and the World Cup of Hockey at the NHL level, while spending a year in the Ontario Hockey League, with the Oshawa Generals.
