“MYHockey. Your Hockey.” Podcast
New for the 2017-18 season, MYHockey Rankings is excited to announce our inaugural podcast “MYHockey. Your Hockey.". Hosted by Neil Lodin, founder of MHR, and Bernie John, Head Coach of Indy Fuel, “MYHockey. Your Hockey.” will provide listeners insight into the depths of youth hockey. With 15 bi-weekly episodes, we will be talking about players, teams, coaches and the same issues you’re talking about around the rink. From guest interviews with Mason Jobst, an Ohio State All-American and Hobey Baker candidate, and Jay Johnson, Director of Tier 1 Elite League, and many others to ranking updates, hot teams of the week, and an interactive Twitter segment with fans, there is not a better place to hear youth hockey buzz. Tune in on Thursday, September 7th, for our first episode!
