Read AMC’s Thorsten Kaye’s Hockey Thoughts
Thorsten Kaye (ABC.com)
Well fans, if you just can’t get enough of Thorsten Kaye – and, really, who can? – here’s another chance. Thorsten recently began blogging about all things hockey and his favorite team the Detroit Red Wings at NHL.com.
Thorsten is an avid hockey fan. Some of you may have noticed the tee “Zach” wore last Friday, April 25, 2008 was a Detroit Red Wing’s shirt. A lot of Zach’s casual apparel – and even some of the casual clothing on-screen sons Spike and Ian wear – are somehow hockey and Red Wing related. How does he sneak those little bits of unpaid product placement on All My Children?
“Whenever I have the chance to sneak in a Red Wings logo somewhere in a scene, I jump at the opportunity,” said Thorsten in one of his blog posts.

How did this German-born boy, raised partially in England – hence that yummy accent! – become a rabid hockey fan? According to Thorsten it all started in graduate school, which he attended in Detroit.
An athlete himself, Thorsten had a track scholarship to United States International University in California when he first arrived in the US. An injury forced him to change his focus. And that's a good thing or we wouldn't be treated to his portrayal of Zach Slater every day! While in grad school, studying theater and theater history at Wayne State University in Detroit, hockey stole his heart - and his sports loyalties.
Thorsten says the passion of the fans and the players caught his heart and it has never let him go.
If you're like Thorsten and just can't get enough hockey, you can talk hockey here.
On the NHL blog, Thorsten will talk hockey, specifically his thoughts on the Red Wings but he's well-versed on all things hockey so don't think you'll only get opinions about his favorite teams.
