On this edition of the In The Corners Podcast with C.C. Hawkley…The Sin Bin’s Editor-in-Chief, Matthew Harding, comes back to the show he helped start, speaking on the 2019 ECHL All-Star Classic and more!
Harding and Hawkley recap and recall both the 2018 and 2019 ECHL All-Star Weekends, comparing and contrasting the events’ pros and cons.
C.C. breaks down the All-Star Classic game and skills competitions, including interview clips with MVP David Pacan (East All-Star/Brampton Beast), West All-Star/Cincinnati Cyclones Head Coach Matt Thomas, West All-Star/Idaho Steelheads goaltender Tomas Sholl, and East All-Star/Adirondack Thunder forward Mike Szmatula.
Harding discusses the Wichita Thunder’s additions and progression through the last few weeks leading up to the All-Star break, and how the Idaho Steelheads will be seeing a much different team heading into this weekend (January 26 & 27) than they did at the beginning of the season.
Matt and C.C. revisit their 2018-19 season preview picks for playoff positions…
