Jeff Osborn


Jeff, also more widely known as “Gatekeeper”, was the founder/visionary behind the hockey counter-culture independent heavy metal-themed website, Puckin Hostile and subsequent podcast, “The Puckin Hostile Shoutcast”.

Jeff originally began his hockey lifestyle as a goalie, later a coach for 12 years, and more recently a hockey parent. Jeff’s various brand-linked Twitter accounts boast well over 10,000 followers, and has been a regular guest on several hockey podcasts in markets through the NHL. Specializing in his unique insightful game recaps and player analysis (especially on goalies), Jeff drove his reputation—and the growth of puckinhostile.com into a premier Blackhawks hockey website.
