SPUD Sports Sunday’s last episode of the summer is an all hockey show. We start things off by talking with longtime broadcaster on CJRW in Summerside, Roger Ahern, to preview the upcoming NHL season.

Other guests on the show:

Spero Mantzavrakos: A local hockey trainer has taken his talents to Russia and the Kontinental Hockey League. Check out to see how Mantzavrakos trains his athletes and the differences in hockey style from Canada to Russia.

Charlottetown Islanders Season Preview with Cory Arsenault: A broadcaster for the PEI Rocket for the last 10 seasons, Arsenault has seen this franchise grow to what it is today. With a new name change and new owners, will there be much difference in the product on the ice?

Summerside Western Capitals Season Preview: Chris Pride and Corey Jeffery, broadcasters on FastHockey.com, look at how the Capitals will fair up after a year of so many highs and a trip to the RBC Cup.

Thank you to everyone for listening in the last eight weeks! I’ve had a blast covering local sports and beyond and hope to to this again very soon.
