Insider Q&A on a Summer July Day


Happy Friday.

Glad to hear that many of you were able to secure tickets together for the Dustin Brown jersey retirement and statue unveiling game in February. Will be a special night for all of us. For those who weren’t, I’m still planning on holding an LAKI Suite Night at some point during the season, at least a bit of time away from that date to give everyone that opportunity as well, as well as those who’d like to attend both that chance too. More info to come on that front.

Not a ton of new information this week, minus the huge news on Brown, but here for a Friday Q&A! Will be in the comments just about all day, minus a podcast recording coming up in a couple of hours, but I’ll be back through the afternoon to answer whatever you all have to throw at me.

Aiming to have a story on Brandt Clarke to come this weekend, featuring his comments from the end of development camp, heading into Hockey Canada’s summer showcase. Otherwise, it’ll be a busy one personally for the Dooleys with Real Madrid in town tomorrow at the Rose Bowl and the Red Hot Chili Peppers show on Sunday!

Fire away!
