    Episode 94 - Crafting the Inaugural Crapweasels Squad

    Hockey is *almost* back, as news has broken this week that a new collective bargaining agreement and return to play plan could be ratified in the coming days. Lots of... uh... exciting stuff to break down here, and John, Andy, and Darren do their best to accomplish this. 

    The guys also take a look at an article from The Athletic this week that utilizes the local knowledge of its writers to put together a mock expansion team on Seattle's behalf. This leads to a new gameshow from John, in which nobody wins. 

    Also, at a listener's request, John, Andy, and Darren share a few of their favorite games to go back and watch in preparation for the NHL potentially returning on August 1st.

    Segments this week include Goalie Gear Corner, Weekly One-Timers, and Tweets of the Week.

    Episode 89 - Featuring Stu Barnes

    Recognizing all that's happening in the world right now, the guys get a bit emotional on this week's episode of Sound of Hockey. It's been quite the week, as you know, and John, Andy, and Darren certainly did not want to avoid the topics at hand. Nonetheless, they hope that you get a bit of a mental break while listening to this episode, as there's some fun to be had as well. 

    The guys interviewed Stu Barnes before things really escalated locally in Seattle, and it is a fantastic interview. Stu talks about his long and very successful NHL career, being a pro scout for NHL Seattle, and much more. You will definitely enjoy this interview. 

    Segments this week include Let's Get Quizzical and Weekly One-Timers.

I started listening for the NHL Seattle content, but have actually found this to be my favorite hockey podcast for other league news as well. Fans of all teams would enjoy this podcast. Keep up the great work guys.

Andy Brown

Great job Uncle Darren. It is always super fun to listen to your podcasts, and learn some new things about hockey either from you or people you interview.

Best Pacific NW Hockey Podcast

John, Andy & Darren provide Seattle area hockey fans with hours of entertainment (even during the NHL pause) with great guest interviews. The segments are fun (especially Goalie Gear Corner 🚨🚨🚨) and the Minnutia, Cannutia chirps are hilarious. Keep up the great work guys and Go Crapweasels!
