Episode 13 – Where’s The Rule Book?

Marty, Dave, John and Aaron are back again, and this time, they’re throwing the rule book out! (Not that we had one to start with you understand…)

After a bumper weekend of thrilling games in the EIHL, the guys chat all about the Giants’ games against the Sheffield Steelers, Paul Thompson’s mini-meltdown. We also look at some NHL arena stories, youth development in Canada, fan-made uniforms, and Aaron gives us the expert run-down on High Sticking! Along with this, there’s plenty more too, so put a brew on or pour a cold one and settle into Door 14 Hockey!
