    Episode 39: What’s Juniors? with Mike Ashley

    Episode 39: What’s Juniors? with Mike Ashley

    The star of his Nunaka Valley Elementary School club team in the 60’s, Mike Ashley went on to cut his teeth in the Saskatchewan Junior League for the Weyburn Red Rings. That rough and tumble, rise and grind experience would pay dividends when he traded his stick for a clipboard. Coach Ashley amassed 10 state high school championships during his tenure behind the bench at Dimond (head), Service (assistant) and South Anchorage (head). He was also an assistant bench boss to Brush Christianson at UAA in the early 80’s and took the helm of the Anchorage Aces for the 1992-1993 season.
     
    Now retired from both coaching and teaching Mike is still heavily involved with USA Hockey as a Pacific District Evaluator for Alaska. He officiates youth/adult hockey and volunteers at high school hockey games as an off-ice official.  
     
    The 2019 Alaska High School Hall of Fame inductee has honest and intelligent takes on all the hot button topics about the state of Alaska hockey. Forever the rink rat, this rat has stories. A lot of stories!

    Kari, that’s right Kari Bustamante… now Kari Ellsworth.

    Kari, that’s right Kari Bustamante… now Kari Ellsworth.

    Kari, that’s right Kari Bustamante… now Kari Ellsworth. The Anchorage Wolverines VP of Marketing and Communications talks all things Wolverines and her roll in helping start a junior hockey program from scratch. The conversation turns to all Alaska sports, growing up in in the AK, ODR’s and to her time in journalism. Kari recaps her days of broadcasting the KTUU Fishing Report and something about catching a big fish (many) on the Kenai River! Queen of the Kenai or creative editing? We debate! You might see her on the river this summer, but in the meantime see what she’s been up to and get an update on the Anchorage Wolverines documentary coming soon. Will the footage from this DNC podcast recording hit the cutting room floor?!?

    Community, Commitment, Character, Culture. Building a Division 1 Hockey Program.

    University of Alaska-Anchorage Head Coach Matt Shasby and the Seawolf Hockey Alliance are bringing Div. 1 hockey back to Anchorage. After a long grass roots community and statewide effort the Seawolf hockey program will soon howl again.  Dump N’ Change got a metaphorical seat in Coach Shasby’s office as he discusses building a program from nearly scratch.  From the current day-to-day operations to the long term plan Coach Shasby breaks it all down with passion and vison. Recruiting, staff, compliance, scholarships, equipment, travel, schedule, corporate sponsors, and even future arena plans; it’s all laid out.

    All your questions will be answered and then some. Coach Shasby has a plan and we are bought in. Let’s go Green and Gold!!

    Episode 35: Christmas Spirit(s)?

    Episode 35: Christmas Spirit(s)?

    The boys drop names you don’t know or care about.
    They tell stories you don’t care about.
    They tell bad jokes in bad taste.
    They swear too much.
    They drink too much.
    And they smell.
    This pod is a gift to themselves…and their three listeners.
    *You’ve been warned.   

    Anchorage Wolverines up-and-coming play-by-play voice Daniel Ramsey joins the boys as a guest/co-host. Hopefully we didn’t bury his career before it really started.

    “Let’s Do Something Crazy” with Coach Dick Thompson

    “Let’s Do Something Crazy” with Coach Dick Thompson

    Dick and his wife Jeannie said to each other back in 1970, “Let’s do something crazy.” The “crazy” was to pick up and move from their home state of Minnesota to Alaska…or Australia! No offense to the blokes down unda’, but we’re certainly glad they chose Alaska. Hailing from Baudette, MN Coach Thompson played for The Lake of the Woods High School Bears before moving on to the powerhouse University of Minnesota-Duluth. After landing a job at Dimond High School he would assist Head Coach Bernie Simon flooding the rink and drawing up the X’s and O’s. The following year he embarked on a legendary head coaching career at Service High School and would amass 287 wins in 16 years winning multiple Anchorage Cups. Dick was also a key player in the development of one of Alaska Hockey’s historic yet little known clubs, The Alaska Drillers, a high school all-star travel team. Download and enjoy this educational and entertaining pod that details stories of some true Alaska Hockey legends from a legend himself.

Keep em’ coming

Coach Wild Pod was awesome. Keep up the good work. Can’t wait for Wild 2.01763. If you get Coach B with Coach Wild, the Alaska high school hockey world implodes via y’all’s POD. (Can it be called a Poddie or Poddy?)
