Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears for HOCKEY IS BACK.
After a painful summer, our favorite sport is back on the ice. Across the league a number of rookie tournaments are taking place and as they conclude NHL training camps will open. The NHL returns, and LWOS is here to cover all the action.
This weekend, Charlie O’Connor Clarke and I from the Last Word on Sports hockey team were lucky enough to attend the NHL Rookie Tournament held at the Budweiser Gardens in London Ontario, featuring prospects from the Toronto Maple Leafs, Ottawa Senators, Pittsburgh Penguins and Montreal Canadiens. We obtained a ton of audio at the event, and we’re going to share it with you today.
