We’re back with a new episode dedicated to the Humboldt Broncos.
Cam shares his thoughts on this tragedy and offers his insight and shares some stories on his time playing junior hockey and taking long bus rides in the Canadian north. Playing in the juniors has probably changed a lot since Cam played junior, but his stories are really fun to hear.
Kris gets Cam to share another embarrassing story of a fight with a goalie. What does Cam do in that fight that he’s embarrassed to talk about (but does)?
Questions and discussions center around:
-Are goalies fair game to bodycheck when they leave the crease?
-Cam’s thoughts on his prediction that the Las Vegas Golden Knights would make the playoffs?
-Who’s to blame when a hockey team with lots of potential doesn’t make the playoffs? The coaches, management or players?

Tyler’s Take: View From the Penalty Box
Was just sent this by a fan and it made my day. Not many, if any, videos exist of me giving interviews and here’s a big one where I discuss my double overtime goal with Canadiens de Montréal. I sure do miss those days.
-Cam runs into Wayne Gretzky and shares his encounter with the Great One.
-Cam remembers his first NHL goal
-A listener asks how to improve the Edmonton Oilers (take a drink when Cam can’t pronounce Magnus Paavarji’s name)
-Cam’s thoughts on Connor McDavid (and his parents) being heckled by ‘fans’ in Edmonton
-Cam shares his ‘list’ of the top players he had the privilege to play with.
-Was there a player in the WHA that deserved to have played in the NHL?
