In 2006, NHL Network personality Kathryn Tappen joined New England Sports Network (NESN), where she served as studio host for Boston Bruins games and as a lead anchor for SportsDesk. Kathryn Tappen left NESN in 2011 for the NHL Network. So this Stanley Cup Final it’s probably a good idea to follow Kathryn Tappen as she really knows her Boston Bruins. However, I’m sure she knows her New Jersey Devils even more. Kathryn Tappen is from Morristown, New Jersey and she went to school at Rutgers. Her husband is former New Jersey Devils player Jay Leach. Leach has been out of the NHL since 2011. However, he’s currently still in the Devils system. He know plays for the Albany affiliate. So I’m guessing the NHL Network doesn’t have Kathryn Tappen report on the New Jersey Devils much. At least for the sake of journalism, I hope they don’t! For the Kathryn Tappen biography, and more pictures. Kathryn Tappen was an Academic-All American at Rutgers University where she was a member of the Scarlet Knights cross country and track and field team. She is also a six-time varsity letter-winner, Academic All American, Big East Academic All Star, and former record holder in the women’s 3,000-meter steeplechase.
