Jeff Marek hosts Sportsnet’s weekly CHL podcast, a one-stop shop for news, analysis, opinion and interviews covering the WHL, OHL and QMJHL. Sam Cosentino, the CHL’s top analyst/insider, joins Marek each week to discuss the latest from around the league, as do newsmakers from across the CHL.
On this week’s podcast Jeff and Sam take a lap around the CHL discussing the stretch drives and favourites in each of the three leagues, Quebec’s state of the art Videotron Centre, the Gatineau Olympiques, the chemistry in the Victoria Royals room and arguably the CHL’s biggest home-and-home series of the season when the Erie Otters and London Knights face off with first-overall in the OHL on the line this weekend.
Jeff is also joined by Erie sniper Alex DeBrincat who talks about the pressure of being in his NHL Draft year, his stick superstitions and the toughest goalies in the league to score on.
Finally, London’s Director of Scouting Ken Hornick stops by to discuss the OHL Cup and some of the top prospects fans can expect to see in the league in the next couple of years.
