Last Word on Hockey is pleased to present our new hockey podcast, The 4th Line Hockey Podcast. Coming from Calgary, AB and Nanaimo, BC, Carl and Joel provide their own unique and fun view of hockey. Every week the guys share their thoughts on the news of the week, have a variety of guests from the world of hockey as well as spending some time in segments like Joel’s Counselling Couch, The Rant Shack, and The Hot Seat.

The guys are back and they celebrate the return of hockey. Awards, Stanley Cup predictions and how much hair Jaromir Jagr will have by the end of the season are the main topics on the fly. The fantasy league was drafted just minutes before the show was recorded and Carl complained about his picks even though he shouldn’t have. Spoilers: they didn’t pick the Edmonton Oilers to win the cup. Confusion arises around the global “we” vs. the royal “we”. Is it Brett or Brent Burns?
