The Connecticut Hockey Foundation featured on the Central New York Hockey Report Podcast

In this episode of the Central New York Hockey Report Podcast, the Executive Director of the Connecticut Hockey Foundation Eric Opin joins the show. A graduate of Colgate University, Opin oversees the Connecticut Hockey Foundation – a non-profit organization that was formed to honor legendary hockey coach Jason Pagni. Pagni tragically passed away at the age of forty-three in a car accident. We’ll talk about Pagni’s impact on the game in Connecticut, what the foundation does for youth hockey players, and the big names involved with the foundation. We’ll also discuss a very special fundraiser game to be held on December 1st between AIC and Sacred Heart and the accompanying silent auction!

In Segment Two, Scott and Jordan discuss the Hamilton College Continentals, Colgate Raiders, Utica Pioneers, and Morrisville Mustangs Men’s and Women’s teams! Then, they take a look at the upcoming weekend for the Syracuse Crunch and Utica Comets.
