It’s another monster episode of Sound of Hockey, as Alexandra Mandrycky—NHL Seattle’s Director of Hockey Administration—joins the podcast for a fantastic interview.

Alex is currently one third of NHL Seattle’s Hockey Operations Department (she was one half at the time of the interview), and after getting her start with War-On-Ice and spending four seasons in the Minnesota Wild Analytics Department, she has now been tasked with building Seattle’s Analytics Department from scratch. Her meteoric rise to working in the NHL is a fascinating story, and one that you won’t want to miss.

Also in this episode, John, Andy, and Darren discuss what they are watching most intently in NHL Training Camps, which are either under way or just around the corner. They also discuss the latest RFA and free agent signings around the league.

Segments in this episode include a WHL-focused “You Don’t See That Every Day,” a robust mask-focused “Goalie Gear Corner,” and a solid set of Weekly One-Timers.

This is a solid episode, and you will like it.
