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. Couple that with NHLers remembering their days in junior hockey and regular updates on the latest risers and fallers for the NHL Draft, and there’s really nowhere else fans need to go.

On this week’s show:

  • Jeff and Sam kick things off with some final reflections on the BMO Top Prospects Game and by taking a closer look at the Gatineau Olympiques, who are always a sleeper pick in the QMJHL.
  • Then new Sportsnet.ca contributor Neate Seager joins Jeff to discuss CHL travel and the who’s who of the OHL super competitive OHL.
  • And speaking of OHL powerhouses, Kitchener Rangers head coach Mike Van Ryn discusses coaching this new generation of kids and playing in the CHL’s toughest division
  • All that and much more.
