NHL ready to follow NBA with gay player

Reuters, TORONTO

Craig Brownstein, the Washington-based vice-president of media relations for Edelman, the huge public relations firm, turned his passion for the Washington Capitals into a popular blog, Puck Buddys, (“for boys who like boys who like hockey”).

The blog, developed with the help of Brownstein’s longtime partner, gives a voice to gay NHL fans.

“We kind of write about the game from the gay perspective,” Brownstein told reporters, and gave credit to the NHL and the NHLPA for their partnership with You Can Play. “Proud that it was my sport was the first one to take the step in doing this.”
