Meet Our HOHM Team

Igor Burdetskiy

Founder, Editor-in-Chief & CEO

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don’t compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of “it’s just a game” and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it’s a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: and let’s talk some hockey!

Steve Auld

Managing Editor

My name is Steve and I am from the very noble Auld clan of Niagara, where we respect our elders and follow the golden rules: elbows up, and keep your stick on the ice. When not tearing up beer league or ball hockey, I enjoy the occasional downtime I have with my fiancee wife and our baby boy. Love me some Foo Fighters too. Read, like, and if you feel I did a good job or you want to argue, leave a  comment.

Pedro Rengel

Research Editor

Originally hailing from the tropical paradise of Venezuela, I moved to Canada at age 11 for the sole reason of falling in love with hockey as a self-proclaimed Pittsburgh Penguins fan. Now a Canadian citizen, my mad love affair with hockey represents a statistical contribution as opposed to an anomaly. Being able to write this well despite having Spanish as a first language is enough of an anomaly (I’m occasionally biased).

    Jacob Mendelson

    Social Media Director

    I have been a hockey fan for the past decade and have grown to be disappointed by the Sharks every single spring. Otherwise as social media director I get to spend countless hours on Facebook and Twitter while watching hockey. If you need to rant about Gary Bettman or want to talk hockey, follow me on twitter!
