FIRST OFF – Last time we asked if someone…..ANYONE would call us the ‘Loose Women of hockey”, and Mark didn’t disappoint (sorry for forgetting it was you during the record this time around!!).
So, from now on – that’s what you can call us!
In this week’s show, the lads chat new signings, EIHL Challenge cup draw, helpful Steelers, the Keefe family, Don Cheery scandal, the theft of Ice Cream and more. Plus all the usual features and segments you have come to expect from the Door 14 Hockey Podcast.
Apologies for the poor sound quality later in the episode, we tried our best to improve it after recording following some technical issues pre-record.
Leeds Chiefs Robbed Blind
NIHL team Leeds Chiefs have had a rough start to their inaugural season, and now made worse after some douchebags broke into their facility and stole pretty much all of their playing equipment.
You can help them out by going to their Just Giving page and donate what you can.
Steelers Hit The Ground In Flood Effort
You know what, we know we’re not the biggest fans of the Sheffield Steelers, and whilst they’re known for some false-starts with their social media and engagement, this isn’t one of them as the organisation hit the streets to help those affected by the recent floods in England – well done lads.
Two Out, One In at the Giants
We wave goodbye to Jessie Forsberg and Jean Dupuy but say “Wattabout Ye?” to David Goodwin.
The Nottingham Panthers have progressed through their group in the Continental Cup and will take part in the finals, location still TBC.
Meanwhile, The Challenge Cup is FINALLY Out Of The Group Stage

There’s a New Keefe In Town for Leafs’
With Mike Babcock being shown the door, it’s been opened for a certain Mr Sheldon Keefe, brother of Belfast Giants’ Adam, as he takes the helm in Toronto. Any chance of lowering ticket prices Sheldon?
Toronto Maple Leafs President and Alternate Governor Brendan Shanahan announced today that Mike Babcock has been relieved of his coaching duties and Sheldon Keefe has been named the Club’s new head coach. #LeafsForever

Team GB will host Canada in Nottingham in Pre-Worlds Exhibition
Team GB last week announced that they will host Team Canada in an exhibition game as they prepare for their second run at top-flight world championship hockey. Ticket sales have been hailed as “Phenomenal“ – but we have takes….
Only one from EIHL DoPS this time, and it’s Steeler’s Anthony DeLuca who takes a one game ban – we discuss and also consider if there’s a cultural swing in Sheffield as they seem to be ‘Ban Magnets‘ at the moment.

Player gets punched (kinda) and decides the best way to respond is to SPIT on his opponent…gets his comeuppance from NHL DoPS, and we couldn’t agree more!
