Twitter

Price: Free

Twitter is surprisingly good when it comes to hockey apps and NHL apps. Each NHL team has its own Twitter handle. Most of them are run by some really fun people. It's a great place to see scores, highlights, and hot takes on big news. You won't get in-depth information on Twitter (no one does), but it's good for at-a-glance stuff. In addition, most hockey leagues have their own Twitter handles as do most minor league teams. Every hockey writer and personality has one as well. It's a good way to stay up to date on the sport in general, not just the NHL.

Yahoo Fantasy Sports

Yahoo Fantasy Sports is probably the best fantasy sports platform for hockey fans. It has a decent set of features. You can create leagues, perform drafts, manage your roster, browser and pick up free agents, and more. It also includes a messaging service. That way you can trash talk with the other GMs. It even has GIF support. The app is a bit buggy and probably always will be. Make sure to double check your rosters from a computer on occasion to make sure the app is actually setting them properly.

Those are generally the channels showing NHL games. We have our favorites in a separate list linked at the top of this page under the first paragraph. All of them make great hockey apps.
