John has been covering the great game of hockey for over 40 years in many facets. He was the Executive Producer for Hockey Night in Canada, was in charge of programming at NHL Network, and so much more. For years, he was a staple of Sportsnet’s trade deadline and free agent frenzy shows.

He’s absolutely one of the most distinguished guests I’ve ever had the pleasure of speaking with. His knowledge of the game shines through in this latest episode and I hope you enjoy it.
