Syracuse Speaks Podcast Episode #83: The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Welcome to Syracuse Speaks, a podcast for Field Pass Hockey!

Now in its fifth season, Syracuse Speaks aims to cover the Syracuse Crunch, its organization, and the American Hockey League from the stands. Host Alexandra Ackerman has been covering Syracuse on the internet since 2008 and desires to share her passion for the team and the league with her listeners.

In this episode, recorded November 27th, 2022, it’s all about the comfortable predictability of the Crunch’s November. Alex discusses the team’s recent string of successes – not unexpected given Syracuse’s tendencies under head coach Ben Groulx – while also identifying some shakey areas Syracuse is trying to figure out. She discusses goaltending, including how the recent injury to Hugo Alnefelt has changed things, including the recall of ECHL organizational goalie Jack LaFontaine. She also mentions the recall of Alex Barre-Boulet to the Tampa Bay Lightning and the performance of defenseman Darren Raddysh. She takes the temperature of the fans using responses to a recent Twitter poll she put up and breaks down how those who responded are feeling:


She also takes a peak at the Unofficial Daniel Walcott Career Milestone Tracker and muses about the return of team captain Gabriel Dumont from injury. 

Alex ends the podcast in her usual way by looking at the Crunch’s next few weeks of games and promotions, highlighting the team’s North Division competition and discussing an upcoming beloved minor league hockey tradition: The Teddy Toss.
