Hi everyone......my apologies for the lack of updates over the past week or so. Unfortunately, I'm going to have to take a break until early in January.
Next week, I head to Ottawa to broadcast the USA games of the World Junior Championships for the NHL Network (Directv, Channel 215). I've never called games for my country, so for me to say this is an honor would be an understatement.
Preparing for a tournament like this requires a ton of time. As a result, I won't be able to provide Thrashers updates since I'll be away from the team for a couple of weeks. However, I will report on Angelo Esposito, who earlier today was named to the Canadian team.
In case you were wondering about the schedule of games for Team USA, here you go:
Dec. 26 Germany 3:30pm EST
Dec . 28 Czech Republic 7:30pm EST
Dec. 30 Kazakhstan 7:30pm EST
Dec. 31 Canada 7:30pm EST
Jan. 02 Quarterfinals 7:30pm EST
Jan 03 Semifinals 7:30pm EST
Jan 05 Finals 7:30pm EST
All USA games on NHL Network.
