Nick came in sporting a one-of-a-kind…. Errr, 25-of a kind? Anyway, it’s a cool sweater and he was a happy birthday boy. Some chirping on Twitter about a listener’s tattoo spurs a deeper conversation about the origin of Nick’s unfinished ink. We debut a new segment, April’s Positive Thoughts, and the girls talk about their upcoming hockey league social – which they are forced to buy tickets to. Meanwhile, Brazil is building a hockey program, which we decide will spark a Cool Runnings sequel, and Dani wore pink for anti-bullying day and starts a chat about bullying in hockey (while we all bully each other shamelessly.)

There’s a week left to enter the BLT Jersey Challenge and Nick can’t wait to count all your votes himself on Instagram. April picks up a hobby-jobby (real word) as a timekeeper and she has tips for how to get out of the penalty box early. Dani rants about forwards being too whiney when she’s pushing them around in front of the net, but there’s probably another side to the story. Nick forgot what happens in Vegas stays there, and tell us all about the recent Draft Tournament. More importantly, the crew comes up with a bunch of ways to win free stuff, including a Twitter contest for Draft Tourney discounts!

The last episode before Christmas and the crew chats about reasons that are ok to skip hockey. PS... Hey Oklahomans, being to cold isn't a reason to skip hockey. 

Jacqui from the Calgary Inferno stops by to chat Keep the Beat and her teaming up with Nick to create awareness for heart health. Nick revels his big plans with Jacqui, Keep the Beat, and Heart and Stroke foundation to play hockey once a day for 31 days to help promote heart health. April, Dani, and Jacqui don't think he can do it!

We got stood up! We are so upset we didn't even write an episode summary! 

Enjoy!

This episode is a little different than all the other ones. The first thing you’ll notice is no girls! April has strep throat so Nick canceled recording for the day. Brett had a different idea. While sitting around eating Tacos it was suggested that Brett and Nick try to record with the new guy! Jay is our colleague and resident tinder expert. Nick, Brett, and the new guy discuss pond hockey stories, their most despised type of player, and an upcoming interview ( Jay thinks it’s a date we are setting him up on) with Beer League Beauty. Enjoy the all dude episode while you can… Dani and Streppy April will be back soon!

Your friendly neighborhood hockey podcasters have giant heads now – and that’s not a metaphor. After a few visual gags that will surely translate perfectly to podcast form, Nick hits us with a new graphic novel called Hockey Karma (see youtube for link). Dani made her senior men’s hockey debut in Florida this weekend playing in a charity tourney with her dad – no empty net goals so stats stayed intact. The crew pries out an update on Dani’s Facebook creeping and April’s box get saucy this week. Plus, the latest Q & A includes everyone’s Christmas wishlist!

Nick is fresh back from his surprise visit to Newfoundland, Canada, where Westy winners the Tom Cats showed him a whirlwind weekend. They embraced him with open arms and celebrated hard after being crowned greatest hockey team in the world! Nick tells us about some interesting Newfie traditions, like the Mummers. Nick wants to bring that one to Calgary but April and Dani aren’t so sure… Of course, the lovely Tom Cats sent Nick back with tons of things to stuff in April’s Box. Meanwhile, Dani thinks a player was flirting with her while she was reffing and she asks the listeners for advice after finding him on Facebook. Should she send him a friend request?

The BLT crew gets a special package mid-show care of one of our exalted hockey gods. Let's just say it was hard for them to talk after, let alone concentrate on the show. But being the consummate professionals they are, they power through. Dani is dead set on being a hockey advice columnist (is that a thing?) and asks the listeners to send in their questions. Nick tests the limits of the Transpuckter (Transpuckter.com) and April finds something new in her box. Plans are coming together for #HelpAHockeyPlayer, the crew chats about ciders, and there's talk of a world record attempt!

Episode 79: The Hockey Refugee Episode

What we use to record:

The BLT crew is back from Phoenix just as pasty as when they left. Not much time for tanning when you're playing 5 hockey games in two days! Nick put a bounty out on Dani's QRL and her bae ended up in pieces ... You'll have to listen to hear how. The Westy is ramping up with the final five campaigning hard to the secret selection committee. Meanwhile, we asked our American friends which BLT member they'd live with if they claimed refugee status in Canada. Even more exciting, Nick's been getting crazy ideas again, including a new drinking game (you all might be able to play with us!) and a charity drive to help hockey players this holiday season.

All you beer enthusiasts can get a little dewy listening to our special guest. Jasperite (Jasperian? Whatever, guy who lives in Jasper) Chalupa came bearing gifts in the form of growlers and had the BLT crew sipping some craft beer as he reminisced about his time working at a brewery making that sweet liquid gold with his own two hands. April get a delightful surprise after a listener was kind enough to jam-pack her box full of cool stuff. Dani and Nick are present but they don’t really add much to this episode, they kinda phoned it in.

Oct 19, 2016

Distracted by the overwhelming number of viewers on the Facebook Live broadcast, the BLT crew may have forgotten this is a podcast. Can’t help it, the excitement’s building as teams in the Top 16 of the Westy flood to FB live to ask questions … and mostly just heckle us. Nick talks about the new BLT award he wants to give out, and throws a shout out to Goalie Gear Sluts United. We play a new game called “What Can Dani Deadlift?” and ready your earballs as one host eats what we found in April’s Box.

Oct 12, 2016

The fans take front seat in this episode when we open the floor to a Q and A session. Things get rowdy in the Facebook Live feed with our most-watched video stream ever thanks to the teams jockying for a Westy endorsement. Plus, it’s a happy day for April as we debut a new segment called “What’s in April’s Box?” where we get to peek inside at some swag a fan sent her. And Nick tries to stop Dani from talking about the [NICK EDIT] which shall not be named. Lastly check out our new collab with heartsofhockey.ca! HoH is a group trying to spread their love of hockey all over the globe.
