Here's what you'll need to provide to take part in a future NHL Hockey 95 game!

To create a player for you I need:

1) Your name (bear in mind that the game will need two parts, i.e. 'Gameplay Jenny', 'John Smith')
2) Your position (goaltender, defence, left wing, centre, right wing)
3) Which way you shoot (left or right - it's whichever hand is furthest down the stick)
4) Your stats (see below)
5) Your squad number and an alternative

NHL 95 allows the allocation of points into skills. It's generally from 45 to 95 with the odd exception. You can either do this yourself, or give me a general idea of the player you'd like to be and let me do it. Due to various little quirks you might not get exactly what you want but it'll be as close as I can get it.

A team has two goalies, six defencemen, and twelve forwards. As I can only have two goalies it is first come, first served - you will also not see your name displayed as much, as (barring some miracle) you won't score goals. Mind you, with me at the helm, neither will anyone else!

If you're having any problems, contact me over Twitter (@GameplayJenny) or by e-mail (channel @ gameplayjenny.com).

Let's get a team together and beat those All-Stars!

“Like Gameplay Jenny, but sportier”

I have a new Twitter feed for anyone who wants to tune into me updating live from ice hockey matches, commenting on the football, or weeping over sports betting.

That means the rest of you won't have to listen to any of that - unless you want to! If you do, please join those who have already started following @GJenSports.

Will It Trend? Attempt Number 2…

A HUGE thank-you to everyone who used the #BBCSportIceHockey hashtag last night when tweeting about hockey in both the UK and US.

In case you don't know why we're doing this, the new BBC Sport website now has a buried ice hockey section and has no recent articles on UK hockey - disgraceful!

Although the tag did not appear on the trending topics list, someone searched Google to see if it was and got here. We also had two BBC journalists acknowledge us to say that they supported the campaign and were trying their best to get the BBC to do something about the matter.

There are even more games in the UK tonight, so let's do everything we can to get it trending. That means adding #BBCSportIceHockey to your own tweets, retweeting ones which use it, adding it to and retweeting ones that don't, and getting players and high-profile tweeps to do their bit.

Again, THANK YOU!

UPDATE: The BBC has commented (not officially) that ice hockey coverage is 'regional' and that putting live scores on the central website is 'not an option'. You'll note that the regional links are not to ice hockey itself but a search for the team name.
