As we head into the holiday weekend, I put together another Q&A episode that covers a wide variety of topics thanks to some great questions from listeners. On top of that, this week’s podcast also details some of the reporting I’ve been doing on the Omaha Lancers situation for Daily Faceoff.

To read more about the Lancers, you can check out my stories here and here, however the most comprehensive story I’ve done on the topic is this one. I also shared a few thoughts on why this is an important story that is relevant beyond junior hockey.

It has been a difficult story to report on and I don’t particularly enjoy having to do it, but I do think the players deserve answers for what is going on. Hopefully this ordeal can be resolved quickly, but appropriately.

I also chatted about my most recent roster projection for the U.S. Men’s Olympic Team on Daily Faceoff, which you can check out here. I further explained some of my early decisions and how some of them are already beginning to change.

Then it went to the Q&A Portion which covered topics like:

  • Red Wings prospect Elmer Soderblom and the tremendous season he’s having in Sweden

  • A Los Angeles Kings prospect turning heads in college hockey this season

  • Details on my recent viewing of Toronto Maple Leafs draft pick Matthew Knies, currently at the University of Minnesota

  • Which Michigan players are likely to sign pro deals at the conclusion of this season?

  • Why draft prospect Isaac Howard has seemed overshadowed on a star-studded U.S. National Under-18 Team.

  • Some U.S. World Junior roster notes

  • A preview of the big series between Minnesota and North Dakota
