We interrupt our usual programming to bring you a major announcement from our humble hockey blog!

Canucks Army and the Nation Network would like to formally welcome Canucks Army's newest contributor, Vancouver's own Jeff Paterson! Jeff is a credentialed Canucks reporter for the Team 1040, he contributes a weekly Canucks column for the Georgia Straight, and his work can occasionally be found on Canucks.nhl.com

Jeff's first Canucks Army post will debut on the site on Wednesday, and from then on, look for his stuff regularly because he'll be posting two or three times per week. We're extremely excited to be adding a writer with Jeff's experience and perspective to the staff, and we look forward to bringing you his near daily observations about the team.

With Paterson on board, Canucks Army will now have a guy at the rink for Canucks practices and home games. It's a major step towards providing our audience with a type of independent Canucks news coverage unseen elsewhere in the Canucks blogosphere. In this space, Jeff will be filing stories from the rink as well as sussing out wider trends surrounding the team. We're extremely excited to be combining Jeff's unique insight and access, with our customary irreverence and detailed quantitative analysis.

It's a new day for Canucks Army folks. Make sure to follow Jeff on twitter: @patersonjeff.
