We have a packed line-up for Episode 44 of Around The A with your hosts David Foot and Patrick Williams.
The NHL’s top developmental league continues to push toward the start of the 2020-21 season on February 5th, and we will break down all of the latest developments on that front.
We will also speak to one of the top executives in the AHL, Tera Black of the Charlotte Checkers. She served on the AHL Return To Play Task Force, and she will recount that experience as well as what is next for the Checkers, who opted out of this season.
Out west, we hear from San Diego Gulls president of business Operations Matt Savant as well as head coach Kevin Dineen. Savant also was a member of the Return To Play Task Force while Dineen will be leading an influx of the some of the best young talent in the game from the parent Anaheim Ducks.
We have all of that and more this week on Around The A on the Sports Podcasting Network.
