Tomorrow's Podcast: Jerry D'Amigo, Brad Stoffers

Where's the podcast this week? Oh, here it is.

Heard some of our loyal listeners wonder where we went this week since here it is Friday and we still haven't gone on the air - but we've been hard at work behind the scenes. Plus, this week's game is on Sunday, so it only makes sense to put it off a little. Not much goes on in the college hockey world from the middle of December until after Christmas anyway.

We were grateful to get the opportunity to talk to the most familiar member of the US Junior Team, at least when it comes to RPI fans - Jerry D'Amigo, formerly of the Engineers and now skating for the Toronto Marlies. We'll ask him how it feels to be back in Troy and what he expects to see from his former teammates on Sunday.

We'd been hoping to talk to Seth Appert and John Burke this week, but there's no downtime when you're a head coach - both men are out on the recruiting trail looking to bring in the next wave of RPI success stories. Further, with the women's schedule through until the New Year, all of the women's assistants are gone for the holidays. We'll try and talk to one of the women's coaches soon.

But with the men still in town, we'll have the opportunity to talk to Brad Stoffers, the men's volunteer assistant coach. We'll ask Brad to give us a sense of the coaching staff's impression of the season's first half, talk about expectations moving forward, and learn a little more about the man himself.

When does this all go down, you ask? Well, it's a weekend special - Saturday, December 18 at 4pm. Don't forget to tune in, you won't want to miss it!

Last week, we talked to Brian Sullivan from USCHO about the RPI/BU matchup. He picked RPI to win and... well, he was right, wasn't he? We also talked to senior Bryan Brutlag and had a special guest on (Ed Lass) to talk about the sports scene in the Capital District (and the RPI basketball team's appearance at the Times Union Center, which they ultimately won). You can check it out on demand below, or use the player to listen to us when we go live tomorrow at 4pm.
