From Aarif and JJ: Before any hockey is discussed, we’d like to take a moment to apologize to Kyle Beach. The hockey world failed you. We hope you feel vindicated by what’s been shared with the world this week and the fallout of what’s to come when hopefully everyone else who was involved is held accountable. Thank you for being an inspiration.
The show starts with thoughts on Beach coming forward as the man behind the pseudonym ‘John Doe’ in the investigation of sexual assault allegations against the Chicago Blackhawks organization and its former video coach in 2010. The guys then turn to hockey talk, and discuss the Avalanche’s loss to the Vegas Golden Knights and thoroughly break down the five-minute major called on Jack Johnson and the reaction from some of the Avs players. The guys then preview the upcoming two games, including new line combinations from Wednesday’s practice heading into a road game in St. Louis. All that and more on this edition of Hockey Mountain High: Your go-to Avalanche Podcast.
Produced by Patrick Stedman.
