PODCAST: A breakout player and the making of a referee

We have two fantastic stories for you this week!

First, Wolves forward Tanner Jeannot grew up in Oxbow, a Saskatchewan town of 1,300 “where the air hurts our face.” Not drafted by the Western Hockey League. Not drafted by the National Hockey League. Yet he’s ripping up the AHL in Chicago and recently made his NHL debut with Nashville.

Next, what could possibly make Wolves general manager Wendell Young state these words? “I never thought I would say this: I owe a lot of gratitude to the Rockford IceHogs organization.” Wendell feels this way in the wake of Monday night’s game between Rockford and Iowa, which marked the professional debut of his 20-year-old son, Jack, as a referee! Learn all about that night and how Jack has worked hard to develop into an officiating prodigy.
