Good morning/afternoon/evening everyone! Welcome back after (hopefully) enjoying some time off with family and friends. I’m going to be honest, there wasn’t a ton of content out there the last few days besides World Juniors stuff, so this is kind of like a light ease back into hockey before it really comes back with the Stars taking on the Wild tonight (Also, I was flying back to San Diego from Dallas yesterday with a long layover). Enjoy! For those of you off of work/school right now, keep enjoying the time off! For those of you traveling, stay safe and calm! For those of you who are working...keep it up!

Podcasts are pretty sparse this time of year, so in case you need some content to fill your commute/travel/exercise time, here’s some:
