Patrick Donnelly

Sports reporter and journalism student at Boston University

About Me

I am a senior at Boston University studying journalism, focusing in sports. Currently, I am a Boston Bruins correspondent for NHL.com.

At BU, I am the co-director of WTBU Sports. With WTBU, I served as the Hockey Editor for two seasons. I have worked in various capacities as a writer, photographer, broadcaster and editor with WTBU and increased my responsibilities during my now four years at the station.

In the summer of 2021, I interned with the North Shore Navigators of the New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL), serving as the team photographer.

In the 2020 fall semester, I worked with NBC10 Boston and NECN as a digital intern, writing, posting and socializing original content, cutting video and more.

During my sophomore and junior years, I added photography to my skillset, capturing various BU Athletics events, news stories around Boston as well as landscapes and features around New England.

Previously, I was a reporter for the Boston Hockey Blog of The Daily Free Press, covering BU hockey as well. Additionally, I was the lead breaking news writer and a columnist with Black 'N Gold Hockey.

As a freshman, I worked with BUTV10, the television outlet on campus, appearing on “Offsides” as an NHL analyst, as well as “Terrier Nation” to discuss the men’s ice hockey team.

I grew up in Lynn, Mass. and my goal is to professionally cover the Boston Bruins and the NHL both locally and nationally, aiming to one day be a reporter and insider. I often cite NHL insider Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet and Hockey Night in Canada as one of my influences.

Additionally, I enjoy playing hockey and golf, relaxing with friends, collecting sports memorabilia and exploring New Hampshire’s Mount Washington Valley.
