HockeyNow's 15th Anniversary Rebranding Includes New Website

Jillean Kearney - October 08-2013

HockeyNow, a magazine that covers North American minor, major junior and college hockey, celebrated its 15th anniversary with a total overhaul of its branding, print issue and website.

The magazine turned to Agility's Magazine Suite, a content management solution tailored to magazine and media sites, for help rebuilding its online presence. "We wanted something that was built for magazines, plain and simple," Larry Feist, publisher of HockeyNow, said.

The new website launched last month, and HockeyNow is happy with its brand new online offering. "It's still a work in progress, but we like where we're at," Feist said.

Most notably, Feist is pleased with the freedom that the Agility Magazine Suite allows his editorial team. "Our past providers restricted our experience and hampered us by not allowing us to control the look and feel, or even simple changes," he said.

The ability to make every page have its own unique look, the ability to choose and control ad placement, photo galleries and event pages (both new ideas for the magazine) are all perks that Feist is finding within the Magazine Suite.

Feist described the Agility team as very responsive, and likes the fact that his feedback is used to add new features and functionality to the Magazine Suite. "Obviously, things keep getting upgraded and we like that we?ll be part of those improvements," Feist said.
