We’re back, and we’re brining you the years of experience and expertise that we’ve gained over many years as seasoned hockey pro’s…..yeah ok, in all honesty we’re three, sometimes four, hockey fans that have opinions, and most of the time – you can liken our knowledge base to that of Ralph Wiggum – means well, but comes up short a lot of the time!

This time around, we’re discussing the…

Its a Level Three Killstorm out there, and there’s no way that the guys were going to ever be able to get together at HQ to get this one done – so for the first time ever it’s a Mega Skype-athon!

Marty does his best to keep Dave, John and Aaron on target, but you know us, it goes as well as we all expected!

We chat all about the recent…

2018 is here, and the Door 14 (or 15 depending on how closely some of you seem to watch us at games!) Hockey Podcast is back!

The guys are back together once again as they chew the fat over the festive period in the world of hockey.

We chat about the NIHL for the first time in ages, look across to the NHL and the All Star jerseys, charity jerseys, the top…

Another podcast and another questionable title delivered by John during recording…the guy just doesn’t have a filter!

 

All four lads are back for the first time in a month or so, with Aaron back in the room, and even bringing some quality content with him! The guys chat all about the recent games for the Belfast Giants in the League, as well as bringing highlights, and sometimes (well, mostly if…

Marty, Dave and John are back, without Aaron once more who has jetted off to Milan this time to sample some of the local baked goods…

 

This time around, there’s plenty to chat about, with the EIHL heating up as the mid-point of the season approaches, the NHL starting to get into it’s swing…unless you’re in Arizona… and internationally; Canada and the US have some serious thinking to do in…

As my adventure to the spiritual home country of hockey ends with me sat in seat 39G of Air Canada’s flight to London, I find myself at a loose end and able to start to reflect on what has been a trip of a lifetime. I really should mention that this trip wouldn’t have happened if not for my amazing fiancée Catherine either, so now that’s the mushy part…

Door 14 Hockey get stuck back in after a lovely trip to Canada…well, at least for John anyway, but you’ll hear about that soon enough!

 

 

As always, let’s start with a look at the EIHL and NHL standings as they were as of the recording tonight, starting with the EIHL League, Conference and Challenge Cup standings:

So, I’ve been in Canada a little under a week now and I’ve been to my first ever NHL game at the Bell Centre (Centre Bell to the native Québécois Montrealers) and so far the hockey experience here has been very different to that I’ve experienced back home in Belfast.

Firstly, the scale of it is on another…

The Door 14 Hockey Podcast returns once more, and this time it’s all gone to the dogs, but we’re going all out and applying some puppy power!

Have a look below at some of the nonsense we chatted this week and have a read of some of the sources too. We couldn’t do much without suckling off their teat!

As always, we start by looking at the standings in both the…

We’re, if nothing else, inconsistently consistent….wait, have we used that one before?!

This week, Marty and John are in their usual seats at the mics, but this time Dave is ‘calling it in’ and Arn is….well, absent….but that doesn’t stop us here at Door 14 Hockey!

In a new episode of the Door 14 Hockey podcast, the guys begrudgingly discuss Panthers success in CHL. The gang get political, get outraged by…
