Meet the Boston Hockey Blog’s new writer

By now we are all sure you have heard the news circling around the Boston University men’s hockey team, The Boston Hockey Blog is happy to confirm that Eddie Moran will be joining Matt and Liam for this upcoming season. Below you can find more information about Eddie.

We are working to learn more information about the rumors linking head coach David Quinn to the New York Rangers.

Ed Moran is a rising senior in Boston University’s College of Communication double-majoring in Broadcast Journalism and Advertising. He grew up in the New York City area, but now resides in Windham, a rural town in upstate New York’s Catskill Mountains. Although Windham is far removed from New York’s sports culture, Ed has been entranced by sports since his childhood days of watching Sunday football with his grandfather.

When he began applying for colleges in 2015, Ed focused on out-of-state schools with a strong communications background. He admittedly applied to BU on a whim, not fully aware of its academic, or even hockey, reputation.

Little did Ed know when visiting BU on April 11, 2015, for COM’s Admitted Students Day, that he was there the day of the 2015 National Championship game between BU and Providence. Seeing the BU students all along Commonwealth Avenue repping those scarlet and white colors exposed him to a sport he was previously unfamiliar with: hockey.

Watching the mayhem that day convinced Ed all along, BU was the school for him. During freshman year, he joined FreeP as a writer for women’s soccer, basketball and lacrosse. Since then, he has served as an Associate Sports Editor, and is grateful to spend his senior year on the Hockey beat.
