A New Start for Hockey Blogger/Podcaster Chris Wassel

Sometimes, the hardest thing to do is say goodbye to something you love doing. 

For hockey blogger Chris Wassel, it may have been hard to say goodbye to his well known hockey podcast, The Hockey Program. However, with every end, there is a new beginning.

For Wassel, that new beginning is a new podcast with The Hockey Writers. Chris was kind enough to tell us a little bit about his new program as well as what it was like to say goodbye to The Hockey Program podcast.

PH: Growing up, who was your favorite team/player? Why?
GT: I grew up religiously following the Toronto Maple Leafs, although I have always kept an eye on other teams around the league. I claim to have a favourite player, but I enjoy watching Luke Schenn.
