TORONTO (October 7, 2019) – TSN Hockey’s Ray Ferraro and Darren Dreger have teamed up to drop the puck on their new podcast, THE RAY & DREGS HOCKEY PODCAST. The podcast provides expert insight, analysis, and opinions on what’s happening on and off the ice around the NHL. TSN is proud to partner with the UDIO podcast company of Vancouver for THE RAY & DREGS HOCKEY PODCAST, the latest of nearly 100 Bell Media original podcasts and one of more than 250,000 podcasts found on the iHeartRadio Canada app.
Two of the biggest names in the game join forces for THE RAY & DREGS HOCKEY PODCAST. Throughout the episodes, Ferraro and Dreger sit down with many accomplished members of sport and media to discuss a wide range of topics from the world of hockey, laden with their signature personalities and entertaining style. The inaugural episode of the podcast features a conversation with current head coach of the Winnipeg Jets, Paul Maurice. The second episode, being released tomorrow (Tuesday, Oct. 8), will feature an interview with Stanley Cup Champion and Conn Smythe Trophy winner Ryan O’Reilly.
“There is no question that a ‘beyond-the-broadcast’-style podcast featuring Darren and Ray will be loved by listeners across the hockey community,” said Nathalie Cook, Vice-President, TSN. “Expanding TSN’s collection of podcasts to incorporate the expansive hockey knowledge of these two affable personalities makes for a winning formula.”
