- Mike McKenna '05, who played with Rich, was the first tweet I saw about what had happened. I wasn't watching the game, so Twitter was where I learned about what was going on.
- The well-wishes started pouring in from alumni, students, fans and friends.

Inside a Social Media Manager's World
When SLU alumnus Rich Peverley collapsed on the Dallas Stars bench, my phone blew up for hours. Being St. Lawrence's social media manager is a privilege & experiencing the outpouring of support for one of our own last night, in real time, was incredible. Here I'm sharing that experience with you.
