Tim Redinger, Editorial Director, FanSided NHL

Founding Editor of SabreNoise and Editorial Director of FanSided NHL. Also editor of 1428 Elm - so my fandom crosses hockey and horror, or the horror of being a Sabres fans sometimes crosses into my love of movies. I am kidding of course. I love hockey, I love horror, and I love to write, so I do both. When it comes to hockey, I'm a wear white at home, blank sweater wearing fan, non laces type guy. I can't see spending money on a sweater with a guys name on it when he might not be around long enough to wear it out. If I am going to get a name on a sweater, its gonna be an old white home sweater, with either an 11 or a 7 on it. When it comes to horror, there are only a few things that I deem off limits, and even if it is within the boundaries of what my mind will accept, I will still likely sleep with the light on!

About FanSided

FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn a network of over 290 fan-powered unique sports and entertainment sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
