Celebrating Hockey Weekend Across America on the Gospel of Hockey

Hockey Weekend Across America has begun, and Gospel of Hockey co-hosts Matt Gajtka and Larry Snyder explore the development and future of the sport in the U.S. in this week’s episode.

To that end, Matt and Larry welcome good friend Bart Logan back to the program; Bart is the media relations director and broadcaster for the USHL’s Youngstown Phantoms and a strong supporter of USA Hockey.

What does hockey have to do to take the “next step” in the American sporting consciousness? How have Bart’s perceptions of the game changed since he started working in a league that houses most of America’s best young hockey talent?

Matt, Larry and Bart also look at some of the most recent NHL developments, including Columbus’ hiring of the league’s first European-born general manager, revamped realignment talks and the efforts to bring NHL players to next year’s Winter Olympics. Matt then tests Bart’s NHL knowledge in the first Gospel of Hockey Quiz!

Stay tuned to the end of the show to get updates on local college, minor-league and junior teams, in addition to the latest Penguins news that’s connected to USA Hockey:
