For Episode 37 of Tendy Talk presented by the BLPA Podcast Network, I chat with former Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota Men’s Hockey teammate and Hermantown Hawks Alum Allen Knowles. Al and I have had the chance to reconnect recently when we skated at a pretty good pick-up skate together.
On this episode we talk about how a Korean-born kid starts playing hockey in Hermantown, MN, how New Jersey Devils goalie coach Dave Rogalski ended both his high school and college careers, and how our freshman year tryouts were unlike anything either of us had experienced as there were 26 goalies trying out for six spots (two if you account for the returning goaltenders who filled the first four spots).
Being old teammates, Al and I could have talked for hours recounting stories from our playing days together and sharing stories of other adventures in this great game of hockey. I’m sure there will be more conversations in the future, but for now, enjoy the episode.
