Ger Devine, Staff Writer

Ger is 21, Irish and the new rookie staff writer here at Gone Puck Wild. Over the last few years, he has overcome a 6 hour time difference to develop an unhealthy obsession with the Minnesota Wild and NHL hockey. Symptoms of this include: Regularly finding himself sitting glued to the screen through another bore-fest between the Wild and the Flames at 4 AM on a school-night,  interrupting his lunch break to go study Charlie Coyle’s possession numbers, or falling asleep to happy thoughts about Zach Parise’s fore-checking efficiency. Aside from hockey, Ger is also a big-time music fan, a musician, and generally just a pop culture junkie. Other sports he is into include: soccer, NFL, rugby, NBA and cricket.
