Meet Sydney Wolf, hockey reporter for The Rink Live

Unlike many other hockey journalists, I didn’t grow up around the sport. It might seem odd for a native Minnesotan, but I didn’t play hockey, didn’t come from a hockey family, and never truly experienced the sport until I went to college at St. Cloud State University. That being said, once I went to my first Huskies game, I was hooked. Ever since that first college hockey game, I have immersed myself into the world of hockey and love watching the game at all levels.

Throughout my time at St. Cloud State, I delved into the world of journalism and broadcasting. I held many positions at the University and was heavily involved with KVSC, UTVS and the Chronicle. I did everything from radio and TV broadcasts to booking bands for live music programs.

I had a lot of experience in broadcasting in college, but once it came time to graduate, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. I loved media and journalism, but there weren’t a lot of job opportunities at the time due to the pandemic, so I had to think of something else. I changed paths and attended graduate school at St. Cloud State, a school I already knew and loved.

I was into my second semester of grad school when I saw a job posting from The Rink Live. Being an avid reader of the website already, I thought I would take a chance and submit an application. I was over the moon when I found out I had an interview, and again later when I got the position. It’s my dream job – covering youth hockey with writers I looked up to and respected.

In my free time, I love playing and listening to music (I think I have a pretty decent vinyl collection), playing video games, learning languages, traveling with my fiancé and watching any kind of hockey I can (specifically the Huskies).

Sometimes people will ask me if I ever get tired of watching hockey, but honestly, the answer is no. If you see me around at games, please say hi and let's talk some hockey!
