Of the 1500 viewers who visited Rickerby Hockey throughout the dog days of summer, half of them were American. This trend is increasing. Make no mistake about it, the number of RH viewers hailing from the United States is currently eclipsing those from all other countries including Canada.
If you’re aware of the overall growth of the game throughout the U.S., where they are expected to surpass Canada in youth hockey registrations within the next decade, this increased American viewership won’t surprise you — except RH is old-time hockey! These images are of Canadian players from fifty years ago, and still most of the people interested in them are from the United States. America is increasingly hungry for hockey and I thank them for that.
