Continuing its efforts to jazz up the sport after a strike forced a year hiatus, the National Hockey League next season will offer an online social networking community, NHL Connect. The offering, designed by software firm Five Across Connect, is being trialed in beta and will be open to the public next season. On the site, users will be able to: "create rich, multimedia personal profile pages and share interests and ideas with other users in the NHL community, displaying comments, photos, podcasts and video casts, links to new articles and content, friends or colleagues and RSS feeds." Whew. That's a mouthful.
