Aarif and JJ are back for a special live recording at the Mile High Sports studios! And they’re joined by Peter Baugh of The Athletic, who makes his first appearance on the show following Day 1 of the Avalanche’s development camp. Peter shares how he got into journalism, covering college football for The Athletic, applying for the Avs job and taking over the beat in 2021. He also chats about some of his more memorable stories in Year 1. Specifically, the Gabriel Landeskog offseason story and how it came to be. The guys and Peter also share their thoughts on how the Avs could look this season and if they’re as good as they expect to be heading into another year with high expectations. All that and more on this edition of Hockey Mountain High: Your go-to Avalanche Podcast.
Produced by Patrick Stedman.
