profile pic“In the Crease” was started in an effort to increase peoples’ knowledge of the NHL and hockey in general.  Its goal is to stimulate conversation about controversial topics and give a forum to discuss all things hockey.

My name is Lauren Pluim and I am a fifth year journalism student at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo.

I have been an avid hockey fan for over a decade now, and I as I look towards what I want to do with journalism after graduating university, I know that I want to be somehow involved in the world of hockey.




In the Crease takes you beyond the blue line for an in-depth look at the players, coaches and teams of the NHL.
