The Holy GrAHL Podcast Episode 27: Rocket Roundtable
“Everything.” That’s what it would take to either have the Laval Rocket soar in the playoffs or have them fall flat on their face in round one.
Need some context? Then, be sure to listen to this episode of Field Pass Hockey’s AHL podcast, The Holy GrAHL!
On the 27th episode of The Holy GrAHL, hosts Andrew Rinaldi, Deana Weinheimer, and Jeremy Paul are joined by Field Pass Hockey’s Deanna McFeron to talk about the Laval Rocket. Learn about their meteoric rise to the 2022 Calder Cup Playoffs, along with star players Rafaël Harvey-Pinard and Jean-Sébastien Dea. Plus, she talks about the coaching style of Jean-Francois Houle and which players are flourishing under his tutelage.
But first, your hosts start the show by discussing a glass-breaking milestone for AHL referee Jordan Samuels-Thomas. Then, they look at milestone moments for Michael Callahan, Nick Perbix, Michael Mersch, David Hrenak, Viktor Lodin, and Ethan Frank.
As an added bonus, your hosts also award the Off of the Year. It may or may not surprise you…
It goes to Hartford.
As always, the guys give their hot takes in the Swipe Left or Swipe Right segment. What piping hot takes will they serve up this week?
To round out the show, you’ll get a full rundown the race for the Calder Cup, where the playoff race stands, and our hosts’ games of the week.
Finally, Jeremy presents a low-tech bonus round, which actually goes quite well.
