My name is Kyle Drinnan and I am an international ice hockey reporter who has done stories in every continent around the world.

I was introduced to ice hockey as many Canadians have at a young age. I did everything that was your stereotypical youth hockey player with 5 a.m. practices, road trips to hockey tournaments, and going to get pizza after important games.

But I played in a house league in Mississauga which was where a lot of immigrants would put their children in hopes of integrating with Canadian culture. The white sport was a multicultural sport for me as there were people who didn’t even know English but knew how to play hockey.

Since then, I have become more interested in geopolitics in the world, and learning the borders that make up hockey has shaped my interest in the stories I have reported on. In my final year of the Bachelor of Journalism Honours Degree, my thesis project is a long-form feature on Africa Entering the Golden Age of Ice Hockey, You can read it here.

This world is full of different religions, languages, races, morals, and other things but it all comes together when you talk about hockey. It’s a community that is special where everyone respects everyone and the glory is the success of the programs.
