We started this podcast as a way for us to connect with others over our love of life and the great game of hockey. We are reaching out to men and women of all ages and levels (youth, high school, college and beyond) that we know or have known that have had hockey involvement as a large part of their life; as a player, coach, official, administrator, fan, etc. We are hoping our guests can share some stories about the colorful characters and exploits they were involved in on their journey, or the youth player who has just played the game of their life! We believe folks will enjoy hearing what our podcast has to offer.
