Meet Sydney Wolf, hockey reporter for The Rink Live
Read about the experience reporter Sydney Wolf brings to The Rink Live team. Sydney’s experience with the St. Cloud State Huskies and love of the game provides the comprehensive hockey news and coverage fans deserve.
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.
So, here I am. Loving my job and trying to create the best content that I can in the world of youth hockey. It’s been fun and fulfilling, and I can’t wait to keep elevating my content for hockey fans. I’ve already had so many amazing experiences – attending Hockey Day Minnesota, meeting members of the U.S. Women’s National Team, and making connections with players and coaches from across the Midwest.
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!
