Neil Hilts


I am a recent communications graduate with a massive passion for sports. From being the play-by-play voice for Mount Royal University’s varsity sports teams (hockey included) to working and volunteering for numerous sports organizations, my desire and dedication to furthering sport is fully evident. Although I just started playing hockey last year, I’ve been a lifelong fan and love to showcase it in every way possible.

I joined HockeyXtra in the fall of 2015 after learning about it from Ryan. The vision to tell stories and broaden the reach of the game in Calgary intrigued me. I bring a wealth of writing and social media experience to the team, and cannot wait to learn about video work and more from the brilliant team of HockeyXtra.
