For decades, the Professional Hockey Writers' Association and its members have strived to deliver timely, accurate and interesting news about the sport of hockey. The PHWA has chapters in all 30 NHL cities, including Buffalo, and has 285 members this season. The Buffalo chapter has 15.
As the PHWA name implies, it's open to professional hockey writers, people who derive all or a portion of their income from the coverage of hockey. The group includes reporters, magazine and Website owners, columnists and bloggers.
