The Holy GrAHL Podcast Episode 37: Behind the Scenes with Scott Howson
The countdown is finally over, and the 2022-23 American Hockey League season is here. In episode 37 of The Holy GrAHL podcast, hosts Jeremy Paul, Zack Power, Andrew Rinaldi, Corey Swartz, and Deana Weinheimer are joined by AHL President and Chief Executive Officer Scott Howson.
First, Jeremy shares some breaking news about the first Outdoor Game in the league since 2018. In March, the Cleveland Monsters will host the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins at FirstEnergy Stadium. You better bundle up for this one!
Next, there is a TW/CW for talk about sexual-related offenses. We discuss the dismissal of Bakersfield Condors head athletic trainer, Chad Drown. We recognize this could be difficult for some to listen to. If you want to skip this section, please feel free to jump to 14:15 in the podcast. At the bottom of this post, we have included a few resources for victims in the United States and Canada.
The end of preseason also signals the start of the waiver season. Who got claimed and where are they moving? Corey has the answers! We also discuss some of the marquee roster moves throughout the offseason.
After a round of Swipe Left/Swipe Right, we welcome on Scott Howson.
From navigating a difficult start into his current role, changes to the AHL, potential future market moves, discussion around divisional realignment, and more… he talks about it all!
To finish up the show, the guys make their pick for the game of the week.
Andrew takes us home in the bonus round. Who has the best memory? Find out on this week’s episode!
