Sound of Hockey Podcast Episode 4 – IT’S HAPPENING! HOCKEY IS COMING!
In the latest episode of Sound of Hockey, the guys are over the moon about the NHL’s Board of Governors Executive Committee recommending acceptance of Seattle’s expansion application. There’s no shortage of discussion on what this means to the city, the fans, and the league.
John, Andy, and Darren also chat about the latest from around the NHL, including some surprising and unfortunate injury news, interesting post-camp roster moves, and what will happen now that Joe Thornton has decided to shave his beard.
Other hard-hitting topics include Auston Matthews’ photo shoot for GQ, Carolina wearing Hartford Whalers uniforms, and an analysis of the commercials currently being played on NHL Network.
SUBSCRIBE AND ENJOY!
Episode 3 – The Gritty-Est Episode Yet
The third episode of Sound of Hockey is a fun one!
With the ENORMOUS NEWS of the Seattle City Council officially voting 8-0 in favor of the KeyArena project, the guys are in a particularly chipper mood for this one. Helping that mood even more is the Philadelphia Flyers’ revelation of their new mascot, Gritty, which has taken the hockey world by storm. Together, John, Andy, and Darren break down both topics in detail.
Additionally, the guys “enjoy” a little pre-season hockey talk and discuss the prospects that they’re each keeping their eyes on during this otherwise meaningless stage of the current campaign.
Finally, each host gives his own opinion of which under-the-radar NHL team is most likely to make an unexpected run this season, which quickly deteriorates into unintentional season previewing for the Atlantic and Pacific Divisions.
Episode 1 & 2 We Launched a Podcast!
We’ve experienced some pretty big hockey news over the past week or so, with some great strides being made on the arena front, Steve Yzerman stepping aside as GM in Tampa Bay, and Erik Karlsson getting traded away from the disaster that is the Ottawa Senators. But those stories pale in comparison to what I’m about to tell you…
NHLtoSeattle now has its very own podcast!
We’re calling it “Sound of Hockey,” because… well… Puget Sound. Get it?
On the show, we’ll of course discuss any updates as they pertain to an NHL franchise coming to Seattle, but we also aim to capture hockey lovers from all over the globe by expanding our horizons far beyond the reaches of the Pacific Northwest.
The hosts of the show are John Barr (creator of this little website), Andy Eide (hockey writer extraordinaire/contributor to this site), and Darren Brown (that’s me… I like blogging and podcasting… and I also contribute to the site).
We are now available on iTunes (PLEASE MAKE SURE TO SUBSCRIBE AND LEAVE US A GLOWING REVIEW), Spotify, and Soundcloud. We should be on Google Play in the next couple days as well for you Android users.
We’ve also included the first two episodes below.
We’re all very excited about our latest way of interacting with you, and we very much hope that you enjoy the show!
