The Holy GrAHL Podcast Episode 14: All Together Now
Welcome to The Holy GrAHL, Field Pass Hockey’s newest podcast. They cover the week behind and ahead for all four AHL divisions. From news to looking ahead at the following weeks’ worth of games, The Holy GrAHL has it all!
Here at The Holy GrAHL, hosts Andrew Rinaldi, Deana Weinheimer, Jeremy Paul, Michael Liu, and Zack Power focus on all the stories around the American Hockey League. From the ones on the ice to those that play out in the standings and everything in-between, The Holy GrAHL has it covered.
On the 14th episode of The Holy GrAHL, the crew enjoys a breath of relief in the news cycle following the madness of postponements the last few weeks. They discuss Filip Král’s recent surge that earned him Player of the Week honors and celebrate a delayed goal by Rochester Americans rookie sensation Jack Quinn. The crew also welcome Eric Staal back to the AHL with a bang.
Then, they reflect on Willie O’Ree’s trailblazing in the hockey world and his exemplary character as an ambassador for the game following his jersey retirement ceremony.
Quinn’s goals – four of them to be exact – still weren’t enough to pull his Americans away from falling into our “Oof of the Week,” and the crew discuss the once star-studded Americans now struggling through a competitive North Division.
The hot takes on “Swipe Left, Swipe Right” cover everything from a European-inspired point system to playoff implications and the return of a former popular franchise.
In the scoring races and the Quest for the Holy Grail, they discuss who moved up, who moved down, and which teams need to get going. Our hosts discuss Stefan Noesen’s huge weekend to give the Chicago Wolves the top three-point scorers in the league.
Michael joins the team late in our segment in the first appearance of all five hosts on a single episode in the running of the podcast!
The full-strength podcast then breaks down their games of the week in each division and finishes up with a bonus round inspired by the Wolves’ top point producers that – shockingly – features more Chicago Wolves.
