A quick disclaimer, the guys recorded on Sunday night, and lots of COVID-related news broke on Monday, so some of what’s said in this show has already changed. In line with that, Darren opens this episode of Sound Of Hockey by calling it Episode 186, but he’s just trying to keep you on your toes (it’s actually Episode 168).
Though it had only been a few days since the last episode and only one game had passed for the Kraken, there was still a fair amount of Kraken news to report, as Jamie Oleksiak and Carson Soucy went into COVID protocol and Brandon Tanev got injured. So, John, Andy, and Darren discuss the Edmonton game at length and break down how those pieces of news broke.
They then discuss what is happening in the hockey world as a whole from a COVID perspective and get into some conspiracy theories about why Paul Maurice resigned as head coach of the Winnipeg Jets.
Next, Andy gives a WHL Update, which leads nicely into a World Junior Championship primer. That tournament gets underway later this week.
Segments this week include Goalie Gear Corner, You Don’t See That Every Day, Bad Boys, and Three Stars.
