Icebreaker - NHL Trades, Rumours & Hockey News

Matthew Jennings
[ This app is no longer available for download ]

Icebreaker intelligently watches the Twitter accounts of NHL insiders and notifies you when a trade or rumour is reported within seconds. You can subscribe or unsubscribe to additional news content such as contract signings or staff hires. If you love being the first to know NHL news then Icebreaker is your best friend!

Icebreaker knows when something irrelevant to NHL news has been tweeted and it will ignore them. Occasionally a tweet may slip through but it's always learning from its mistakes.

What's new in version 1.1.0
New Features:
- Notifications no longer require background app refresh to be enabled
- Tweets with web links now show a preview

Bug fixes:
- Retweeted quote tweets are now displayed properly
- Fixed bug where "&" symbols were not displayed properly

This update should solve the issues of missing notifications that some users were having. Unfortunately this meant removing two features in "Do Not Disturb" and muting due to the technicalities of how Icebreaker handled the processing of notifications. I am looking at alternative ways to bring these back in the future.
Our verdict: Good
  • + Icebreaker - NHL Trades, Rumours & Hockey News is a highly rated app (4.5-star).
  • + The app is free.
