Founder, PUCKer Up Sports
Team Member Since May 2018
My name is Nikki! I'm the founder and CEO of PUCKer Up Sports. What started as a girl with a dream has expanded into something truly magical and I am proud of the family that we've created! When I'm not writing or talking about hockey (which isn't often), I'm probably traveling for a concert or a music festival. I love a new adventure and exploring other countries. PUCKer Up is my baby and I can't wait to continue providing great coverage throughout the NHL.
Chapter Head, Toronto

Hello! I'm Sam and I am the chapter head of PUCKer Up Toronto! I'm a graduate of Quinnipiac University where I majored in journalism and minored in sports studies. I am currently a production assistant at Bleacher Report in New York City, where I help create social content and curate our Snapchat story. I have always loved sports (particularly hockey) and writing/creating which led me on this path to journalism. I grew up in the city, but fell in love with those Leafy boys in the Great White North, so I'm very excited to have the opportunity to cover them and be a part of this amazing fam at PUCKer Up!

Hi!! I'm Alicia and I'm a journalist for the Toronto chapter of PUCKer Up. I'm a 1st year university student at the University of Toronto studying kinesiology. I'm stoked to be living downtown next year, and get to see all of the amazing things the city has to offer, and get to watch some Leafs and Marlies. I hope that all the chapters of PUCKer Up continue to grow and flourish this season.

Hey everyone! I'm Claire, one of the journalists in the Toronto chapter! I'm passionate about what I do and about women in sports! I know how important it is for girls to see girls putting in the work in the industry and how it validates that girls belong in sports! I've been a Leafs fan since I was seven and I haven't shut up about the team since! Right now, I'm completing my Masters in media, journalism, and communications at Western University, and I can't wait for you to read my hot takes and help grow PUCKer Up!

Hi! I'm Jen, a journalist for PUCKerUp Toronto. I'm currently a junior in high school and I plan on majoring in journalism in college. I live on Long Island in New York, and while I grew up watching the New York Rangers, I've developed a soft spot for the Leafs over the past few years (thanks to Steve Dangle). When I'm not watching hockey, I love to watch baseball, go to concerts, write poetry, play with my cats, and make macaroni and cheese. I'm so excited to share what I have to say with all of you!

Hi there! I'm Grace, a junior hockey lunatic from Northern Ontario. Right now, I'm in the RTA Sport Media program at Ryerson University, and I'm loving it! I've been a hockey fan my whole life, but really got into it when I started live-tweeting Soo Greyhounds games in 2017. Other than sports, I also love to listen to and play music, bake cupcakes, and hangout with my pals. I'm so excited to be apart of the team here at PUCKerUp and am happy to create some content for you all!
