Hello there! My name is Nicholas LaPalombara and I am a contributor to The Hockey Writers team writing for the Philadelphia Flyers! Born and raised in the suburbs of Philadelphia, I have been a lifelong player, coach, and fan of the beautiful sport of hockey. Ever since I was five years old, hockey has been my one and only true love. I am humbled and honored to have the opportunity to cover the Philadelphia Flyers, my hometown team, for this passionate hockey blog.
