Dave and Ryan are live on tape on location from the Pacific Coliseum in scenic East Van. Home to the WHL’s Vancouver Giants and the old home of the Vancouver Canucks, we set up shop like a lemonade stand in the stands and chat with whoever comes by.
John Ashbridge, Giants and Canucks’ PA announcer joins us first. He chats with us about the Pavel Bure’s #10 being retired, his friendship with Gino Odjick and the unusual way Boston Bruins’ power forward Milan Lucic joined the Vancouver Giants’.
Later, we’re joined by Vancouver Giants d-man and Calgary Flames prospect Brett Kulak. He sits down for a loose conversation about wearing #69 on Don Hay’s hockey team, the NHL draft combine and what his first taste of pro hockey was like, last season playing a handful of games with the AHL’s Abbotsford Heat.
Finally, hip-hop artist and friend of the show Dan, aka Cuddle Puppy, joined us. We chat about high school hockey in Yellowknife, his hop influences and of course, Mike Modano! Cuddle Puppy performed the Giants rap song heard through out the podcast.
One of the biggest shows we’ve ever produced and easily the most fun.
