Behindthenet.ca for all of the advanced metrics
NHL.com has an excellent stats page for the most part and should be included (the usefulness of the Real Time Stats *hits, giveaways, takeaways* can be argued, but still worth an addition to this list)

Copy and paste of players to follow

PRO HOCKEY PLAYERS - NHL (CURRENT)
@BizNasty2point0 Hilarious and outspoken, Paul Bissonnette of the Phoenix Coyotes provides an ongoing look at "4th line plug life". The "2point0" of his handle refers to his brief hiatus from Twitter; fan demand got him back online.
@commie22 Mike Commodore, now of the Detroit Red Wings, actively interacts with fans and has given insights into both NHL and AHL lifestyles.
@grabs40 Michael Grabner, nicknamed "Gremlin", made headlines this year when, after being traded by the Canucks and waived by the Panthers, he got scooped up by the Islanders and ended up being a Calder Trophy finalist. He's very interactive with fans as well.
@LoganCouture San Jose Sharks forward and Calder Trophy finalist, Couture is one of the more prolific NHL tweeters, and frequently interacts with fans through his Twitter.
@ryanwhitney6 Ryan Whitney of the Edmonston Oilers has a great sense of humor and often chirps with his fellow teammates Taylor Hall @hallsy04 and Ryan Jones @jonesry28 - they're all worth following.
@b_ryan9 Bobby Ryan of the Anaheim Ducks has proven to be a popular player not just on the ice but Twitter as well.
@Jtootoo22 Jordin Tootoo of the Nashville Predators has had one of the most interesting player accounts this summer, as he has been tweeting a variety of pictures from his hometown in the far north of Canada. (Land of ice and snow, even in July.)
@SteveKampfer47 Steve Kampfer of the Boston Bruins gave a look into the Bruins on their run to the Cup, but is also worth the follow for being fan-friendly.
@Stache16 George Parros is fairly new to Twitter, but is already proving that the man and his 'stache are going to be entertaining to follow.
@1Masey There's not many NHL-level goalies on Twitter yet. While Steve Mason of the Columbus Blue Jackets has not been on Twitter long, he's already proving why more goalies should be online - they're a lot of fun. His new backup, Mark Dekanich @Dexshow, spent last season showing Milwaukee Admiral fans "how to DexShow", and will now be "bringing the DexShow" to CBJ.



PRO HOCKEY PLAYERS -- AHL / ECHL / EUROPE / OTHER
@GeffMan47 Bobby Goepfert, goalie - most recently with the Charlotte Checkers (AHL)/Florida Everblades (ECHL), Goepfert might best be known for his December 2010 goalie fight which made a splash on the Puck Daddy blog. However, Goepfert is a fun and entertaining follow, between talking hockey, chirping with other players, live "Goepardy" tweeting, or his "twogging" (Twitter blogging).
@MikeMcKenna56 Newly signed to the Ottawa Senators organization, McKenna is very personable, interacts with his fans, and tweets frequently.
@teach_lights31 Tyson Teichmann, goaltender of the Belleville Bulls (OHL) has one of the best bios, and his humor doesn't stop there. Keep an eye on him as a solid future NHL prospect.
@MichaelMurphy31 Another goaltender, Murphy is part of the Charlotte Checkers/Carolina Hurricanes system. Solid tweeter and chirps with fellow AHLers.
@RGrimaldi23 Rocco Grimaldi, 2011 draftee of the Florida Panthers, is chatty, positive and fun. Dude is new to the pro hockeytwittersphere and already tweeting like a boss.
@chriswhitley83 Chris Whitley of the Dundee Stars (Scotland) is one of the few European-league players who is on Twitter, but he's social and chatty. Gives his perspective on the Euro league; also, he's a goalie.
@HP4K_Dustin Dustin Sproat of the Cincinnati Cyclones founded HP4K (Hockey Players For Kids, @HP4K). Solid tweeter, but also leading a cause that's worth supporting.
@JeremySmith30 Jeremy Smith is between the pipes for the Milwaukee Admirals (Nashville Predators system); last season, he and @Dexshow shared goaltender duties in MKE. What can I say, goalies are some of the best Twitterers... you can't follow enough of them.
@zackphillips7 Zack Phillips, new draftee for the MN Wild, is new to Twitter but has taken to it like a fish to water.
@MattDonovan46 Defenseman Matt Donovan is in the NY Islanders system. Tweets regularly and chats about a wide variety of things.

All updated except for the twitter accounts. Trying to figure out how I can keep it clean.

@zeke, what's your twitter account?
