Today, new information was found that may have led to discovering the identity of the infamous "Hockeyy Insiderr". Insiderr, who is known for tweeting false hockey rumors under an anonymous twitter account, may have been exposed today.

Incarcerated Bob, another anonymous hockey "insider", invited HockeyyInsiderr to be a guest on his online podcast this evening. Surprisingly enough, he accepted the invite and went live on the show.

Before I get in to the details of this show, you can listen to the original podcast here:

Here are some of the key facts that we learned from HockeyyInsiderr himself in this podcast:

  • He is 37 years old
  • He played in the NHL
  • He was drafted in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft held in Quebec City, Quebec
  • He went straight to the NHL (Implies an early 1st round pick)
  • He played in Europe
  • He is retired

This information is almost identical to that of Alexandre Daigle's. For those of you who do not know who he is....

  • He is 37 years old
  • He was a member of the Senators, Flyers, Lightning, Rangers, Penguins, and Wild
  • He was drafted 1st overall in 1993 by the Ottawa Senators
  • He went straight to the NHL
  • He played for HC Davos, HC Fribourg-Gotteron, and the SC Langnau Tigers
  • He is retired

The facts are pretty much identical, right? An earlier report stated that one of the possible identities for Insiderr had the initials "A.D.". Incarcerated Bob asked several times whether he is Alexandre Daigle or not, but Insiderr would not answer.

 Daigle was a member of the Philadelphia Flyers for the 1997-98 and 1998-99 seasons. He played a total of 68 games and produced a total of 31 points in his two seasons with Philadelphia. Below is a picture of Daigle as a Flyer.

 Now, Insiderr very well could be just posing as Alexandre Daigle to protect his true identity. If that is a case, that is a poor decision due to the fact that that is illegal...

After the interview, Greg Thomas tweeted a video from youtube of Alex Daigle on his draft day in 1993. If you skip to 1:10 of the video below, you will be able to tell that the voice in that video is identical to that of HockeyyInsiderr's.

 

For a long period of time, nobody has known who HockeyyInsiderr was. All of the information we have points toward the conclusion that he is indeed Alexandre Daigle. If this is true, I'm sure that Flyers fans will be shocked to know that this false hockey insider wore the orange and black.
