After an entirely-too-long five month break, our Inside the SPHL Podcast returns to its former glory!
Our second season premiere episode, recorded on October 10th 2017, Matty and Mike are once again joined by the voice of the SPHL champion Macon Mayhem, Erik Evenson. Joining Erik is Mayhem assistant coach Leo Thomas.
Here’s a brief summary of what went down on the show…
- Leo gave us an update on his nephew, Akil Thomas, currently playing for the OHL Niagara Ice Dogs and a projected first-round pick in next year’s NHL draft.
- Previewed the Macon Mayhem training camp roster.
- Discussed all of the major SPHL stories over the summer.
- Talked whether the NHL has gone too far over the zero-tolerance policy on stick fouls, faceoff violations, and uniform/equipment infractions.
- How the Nashville Predators Stanley Cup Final run challenges SPHL teams in improving their on-ice and off-ice promotions.
- Erik and Leo go on the record for their SPHL season predictions.
- Matty and Mike explain why it’s taken five months between episodes, including a major news leak for our live listeners on Mixlr.
Our thanks to the Macon Mayhem, Erik Evenson, and Leo Thomas for being fantastic guests! Next week’s episode will be our 2017-18 season preview, featuring our new and improved SPHL writing team.
