2022 Season Predictions
The lads have spoken. As always, these predictions are made as if the Giants weren’t taking part – because we all know the clean sweep is on this time…
We’re thrilled to be back for yet another season of hockey and The Door 14 Hockey Podcast, but just because we’ve been doing it for a while now doesn’t mean we’re faultless!
Is there something we screwed up?
Did we miss something?
Can we make the podcast better?
Give us a shout on Twitter, Facebook or even in picture form on Instagram. We want YOU to make us better and get involved!!
