The 2022 IIHF Women’s World Hockey Championships begin on August 25th in Denmark and as per usual Canada has a huge target on their back as the defending World and Olympic Champions. Holly Morrison of The Ice Garden joins Matt to get you set or puck drop.
Please take a moment to leave the show a rating and a review there inside your podcast app. It only takes a second but makes a huge difference for us.
Lots to get to with Holly including which craft beer she’s brought to the table, a little about her background, which big names will be missing for Team Canada, what kind of selection process went on for this team, which names Canadians should be watching to step up and make a difference - as well as which teams and players might be darkhorses to make life difficult for the Canadians.
Later on talk turns to the first ever woman to become a cover athlete for the EA Sports NHL franchise of video games and an update on the PWHPa league that is suppose to start this season.
