KK Interview with CBC’s Kelly Hrudey

Paul Kukla and I had a chance to speak briefly with Kelly Hrudey of Hockey Night in Canada. From his CBC television bio:

Hrudey became a full-time hockey analyst during the 1998/99 NHL season, after providing stellar commentary during the previous four playoff seasons alongside Ron MacLean. And during the 1999 NHL playoffs, Hrudey’s segment Behind the Mask became a regular feature on Hockey Night in Canada.
...
During his 15-year NHL career with the Islanders (six years), Kings (seven years) and Sharks (two years), the former Medicine Hat Tiger compiled a record of 271-265-88, with a goals against average of 3.43, with 16 shutouts.

The conversation can be downloaded here, or listened to on the player below.  Our sincere appreciation to Mr. Hrudey for taking the time to chat with us about the Conference Finals now underway.

KK Interview with LA Times’ Columnist Helene Elliott

I had a chance today to speak with L.A. Times sports columnist, Helene Elliott.  Ms. Elliott is veteran hockey writer who also happens to be the first female journalist to be honored with a plaque in the Hall of Fame of any major professional sport.  From Legends of Hockey:

“Helene Elliott is a pioneer among female sports journalists,” said Kevin Allen, president, Professional Hockey Writers’ Association. “But she has truly been a role model for sportswriters of both genders. Her ethics are unquestionable. Her reporting is beyond reproach. Her prose is lively. Her professionalism is of the highest order. There is no one in this business any more respected than Helene.”

Our conversation can be downloaded here, or listened to on the player below.  My sincere thanks to Ms. Elliott for taking the time to speak to me on a busy game day.

Duhatschek on The Wings/Sharks Series

I had the opportunity to speak with Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail this morning to get his views on the Detroit/San Jose series.
Eric has been covering the series for the Globe and Mail and I really appreciated him taking about 15 minutes out of his busy schedule this morning to discuss the series.
The audio should be of interest to all hockey fans.
I started out by asking Eric about the lack of scoring in this series… listen and enjoy!
