For Seattle hockey fans, things haven’t gone their way recently. The Seattle Thunderbirds are now down 3-1 in the WHL Championship Series after losing two straight at home this week to the Edmonton Oil Kings, and Kraken goalie Chris Driedger tore his ACL playing in the IIHF World Championship.
On this episode, the Sound Of Hockey Podcast breaks down those WHL games and discusses what options the Kraken have to backfill Driedger’s position.
Also discussed on this show, USA Hockey has released its latest data, and Washington State has predictably seen quite an uptick.
You’ll then ge a HYPE-o-thetical, Weekly One-Timers, and Three Stars.

Good, brief discussion on NESN going the streaming route. As a reminder, the M’s partner in Root Sports NW is now Warner Bros. Discovery (~30%), as AT&T spun off and merged their media portfolio with Discovery earlier this year. Regardless, I don’t have a lot of hope of Root going this route soon. The M’s aren’t exactly at the vanguard of innovation. While WBD is busy managing its newly expanded assets.
