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…

The first regular season Door 14 Hockey podcast for 2017-18 is here and we’re coming in loud and clear!

Here’s a taste of what we talk about on this episode. Click the pictures to read more on the source websites.

We chat at length about the ‘newbies’ to the EIHL, the Guildford Flames and the Milton Keynes Lightning (why not see how we thought they’d do in our

Last up we take a look at the last, and newest, conference in the form of the Patton Conference. We have already discussed the Patton conference with team fans and you can read that blog here. However let’s take a more in depth look at the conference and those all-important predictions.

Coventry Blaze

The Blaze had a really tough 2016/17 EIHL campaign. Not only did they struggle for most of…

So we’ve seen the Gardiner Conference reviewer by Marty. This time around John turns the attention to the Erhardt Conference, or as many are calling it; the Arena Teams.

The Belfast Giants, the Cardiff Devils, the Nottingham Panthers and the Sheffield Steelers will duke it out for conference silverware and perhaps even the league trophy itself, the Monteith Bowl. The four teams look to each other as the main competitors for…

This is it, with only days to go to the official start to the Elite League season and our first podcast done and dusted, we thought it would be a good idea to take a look at the league this year with its new teams and new Conference structure.

While exhibition games play a part in helping the teams shake of some rink rust and build together as a team…

We’re properly back for the 2017-18 Season!

In this slightly late pre-season edition of the Door 14 Hockey Podcast, the guys discuss all things EIHL as they prepare for the start of the new season. From conference system changes, new teams and those new pesky Russian Edinburgers!

We’ll also level with you, there were some…issues…with this recording, so apologies for the quality and the edit in the middle. Gremlins have been identified…

With the first competitive games of the Hockey season coming in just over a weeks time, in the form of the CHL, we thought it would be a good time to look at the competition for the 2017/18 season. Wether your new to the competition or have watched it this last few seasons, here are 10 things you should know about the CHL:

10. The CHL started in the…

With the start of the season just around the corner I thought it would be an idea to engage with some of the fans from around the league. So, I picked the Patton Conference as there was so much unknowns with 2 new team, Storm with new coach and the Blaze in rebuild mode after a disappointing season.

Starting by reaching out to each team using their official channels (Minus…

As the 2017/18 season kicks off, it’ll officially be 10 years since I arrived in Belfast from a small place called Fife (some of you may have heard of it). Nine years since I got to know Marty, around eight since Dave finally accepted me into the group and seven since I took Aaron, a guy I’d met a handful of times before through the other two to a…
