Unbeknownst to Kustron and Schwartz, Rubeo turns the mics on early to record their lackluster acapella skills. Before Kus lets the listeners know we’re testing recording the podcasts on video and please don’t be startled by his grey beard. Kitts, Schwartz, and Rubeo briefly celebrate last week’s beer league W after the previous week’s shellacking. And fortunately for Kitts‘ other team, “Munson” (mentioned in episode 23) didn’t show up but neither did their goalie… and yet they still won?! Is that the most embarrassing and frustrating way to lose a hockey game?


The podcast crew, being the jackasses they are, mistakenly report Patrick Kane recorded his 1,000th NHL point. To be clear, he did not lol.

Zdeno Chara recorded his 200th NHL goal… and re-signed with the Bruins for 1 year for $2,000,000.

At an event for the Edmonton Oilers’ season ticket holders, CEO Bob Nicholson surprisingly blamed Tobias Reider’s goal production for the Oilers’ disastrous season.

The NHL announced their Global Series for next season to showcase the brand and game in Sweden, Switzerland, Germany, and the Czech Republic.

The NHLPA released the results of a 500+ player poll of the best and worst around the league.

Ron Burgundy joined the LA Kings’ broadcast booth.

Given our recent #hockeytough Instagram post, Schwartz wants to know if all adult leaguers should wear cages?

Did you see the fan that challenged Ottawa Senators forward Brady Tkachuk to a “floss off?”

And the most polarizing goalie mask ever created took the internet by storm this past week:
