Sound of Hockey Episode 7 – Our First Guest Is… DAVE TIPPETT!


The first ever guest on Sound of Hockey is Dave Tippett, former NHL player, head coach, Jack Adams Award winner, and current advisor for NHL Seattle. Trust us, you won’t want to miss this one whether you’re a Seattle-based hockey fan or not.

With Dave, the guys – John, Andy, and Darren – talk extensively about Tippett’s experience working on the Seattle project, but they also get into some pretty good hockey talk in general. Tippett shares some awesome stories from his time coaching the Dallas Stars and Arizona Coyotes, explains his metrics for evaluating players, and even tells us what the Dave Tippett blow-up looks like. Oh, and he explains the context of this beautiful video.

Also in this episode, a recap of Peter Laviolette’s press scrum in which he donned a life-like bull mask, a riveting update on where the trees around KeyArena are being moved to (oh yes, it’s riveting), a check-in on some of the former WHL players that have reached the NHL.

The guys also debate whether the Colorado Avalanche and Carolina Hurricanes are for real, unravel the irony of the Kenya Ice Lions story, and consider the impact of a possible merger between the CWHL and NWHL.

Plus Weekly One-Timers, Get Off My Lawn, and Games On the Radar.
