Mike Boone, the popular author of the HI/O live game blogs and About Last Night posts, is retiring from his hockey duties.

Boone’s journalistic career has been bookended by a love of sports. He was a sports reporter at the Montreal Star when that newspaper folded in 1979, and he has been live-blogging Habs games for more than a decade.

His sharp wit, hockey knowledge and writing abilities have made him a uniquely mesmerizing live blogger, and we’ll miss his valuable contributions. However, the hunt for a replacement has begun.
