About Eric Smith
My roots for the game come from Fort Wayne where the Komets of the IHL play. They are the most successful minor league hockey program in the U.S. drawing on average of over 10,000 people. Then as I have moved to the Columbus region and the Blue Jackets opened up shop, my passion for the sport as well as the NHL grew even more. I am credentialed by the Blue Jackets and have been covering the team and continue to do so for Hockeybuzz.com since 2007. I have developed some great relationships with the team including front office, coaches and players. I continue to drive to give the Blue Jacket fanbase an inside view that is critical but fair.
