About Forever Blueshirts

Forever Blueshirts Origins

Established in 2014, Forever Blueshirts has been a go-to source for die-hard New York hockey fans,  covering the New York Rangers and Hartford Wolf Pack with fan enthusiasm. 

In January 2023, Forever Blueshirts was acquired by The Publisher Desk connecting the original team that made Forever Blueshirts what it is with even greater resources and expertise. 

Since January 2023, Forever Blueshirts has been on a journey to bring fans closer to the stories, moments, and action they crave. The acquisition allowed us to broaden our capabilities and double down on our commitment to bringing our audience up-to-the-minute news, trade updates, and top-notch analysis. Plus, podcasts and video series, including exclusive interviews. 

Today, Forever Blueshirts continues to deliver deep-rooted fan enthusiasm, but with expert hockey knowledge and ever-growing access. Making it a vital source for Rangers fans seeking insightful, comprehensive coverage.
