Gone are the days when being away from a sports arena, TV or radio meant that you’d have to wait for hours (or even until the following day’s newspaper came out) to discover if your team won, tied or lost. With so many people owning smartphones now and being able to obtain near-instant Internet access, you can find out within seconds how your team is faring.

If hockey is your sport of choice, you’ll be delighted to know that there are tons of apps to whet your appetite for the game, and this infographic by Tucker Hockey ( picks out a selection of the best apps. An ideal place to start is with the NHL’s official app, which is a fantastic source of news updates and comprehensive video highlights. Indeed, you can watch two-minute clips of regulation period action for all NHL games, with full game replays available on demand.

Aside from news and score updates, many hockey fans have also become addicted to fantasy hockey games, of which the best-known is the Yahoo version, which is available in a sleekly designed and easy-to-use app. If you discover that players in your roster are out of action, you can make those all-important transfers right away.
