Episode 098: Women of the Wild West (Part III)

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-9u7ae-d63969

Sorry for the delay, folks! I don’t know where my brain was last week, but I completely forgot to record. Unbelievable, yet…completely believable, because I am me. Anyway, the show is here! This week we follow the Patrick family to Vancouver. It is there they build two state-of-the-art arenas in less than a year, and set up the PCHA. However, not to be forgotten is the actual topic of this series: the ladies! The women in the communities of Vancouver, Victoria, and New Westminster greatly benefit from the Patricks’ arrival, and create teams of their own. Gather ’round as we meet the Vancouver team that undergoes a rebrand, and the “bunch of school girls” who go on to kick some serious butt.

Episode 094: Golden Granato

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-vg8bq-cb647b

Our talk on women’s hockey continues today as we find ourselves in Japan.  It’s here we meet Cammi Granato on the biggest night of her life: the gold medal game of the 1998 Winter Olympics.  Her story doesn’t begin here, however; it really begins in 1980.  It was then that she watched the US men’s team defeat the USSR en route to their own gold medal.  From that moment she was hooked on hockey, and set off on a path to become a superstar.

Episode 093: Like Lightning – The Manon Rheaume Story

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-g4bf4-c70109

Today, we return to the world of women’s hockey.  It’s been nearly two YEARS to the day since the “Queens of the Rink” series released, and I’d say we’re due

Today’s story is about the first female player to lace up skates for an NHL team.  Manon Rheaume, with the lifelong dream of being a goaltender, became an international sensation when she suited up as a goalie for the Tampa Bay Lightning in 1992.

That is hardly the full story, however.  Listen in as we tell of her frequent ups-and-downs, and the numerous roadblocks she had to dodge just to be noticed.

Episode 020: The Winding Road to the NHL (Part IV)

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-rezac-c6e659

In the final installment of The Winding Road to the NHL series, we cover the NHA (00:53-27:23), PCHA (27:29-39:41), and the WCHL (39:47-End). Leagues go to war with one another, and we even see owners within the same league try to take each other down.  After the dust settles on the melee, the NHL is the only thing left standing.
