On this episode of the Hockey Think Tank podcast, we kick off a two-episode week dedicated to Minnesota Hockey and bring on the Head Coach of Warroad High School, a powerhouse in the state. Jay grew up in Warroad, played at the University of Minnesota-Duluth, and went on to a long pro career in the minor leagues before coming back home and becoming the head high school coach. Warroad is a town of close to 1800 people but has produced 5 NHL players, 7 Olympians, 80+ Division One players, and more. In this episode, we cover...
-What makes the city of Warroad so special.
-Playing for 2x defending National Champion Scott Sandelin at Minnesota-Duluth.
-How big of an influence TJ Oshie, Brock Nelson, GiGi Marvin, and other great players have been on the kids in the town.
