Building Something Special | Episode 3


This week's episode features a program on the rise in the New England Wolves, the defending champions in the Eastern Hockey League Premier (EHLP).

Just like last week's guests, the New Jersey 87s, the Wolves are run by a pair of co-owners/co-coaches in Andrew Trimble and Tim Kunes. Since taking over the program in 2017, the Wolves have made steady progress in both the EHL and the EHLP, each and every season. This year, their goals are big at the EHL level, and even bigger in the EHLP, as they look to repeat as champions.

As for the player on the podcast this week, Rob Haak chose the Wolves and the EHL for his final year of junior hockey and it paid off immediately. The '99 native of Spencerport, NY made his commitment to Morrisville State back in October, and just like the coaches, he wants to see both programs advance all the way to the 2020 EHL Frozen Finals in Providence, RI.

Whether both teams advance all the way or not, the Wolves have become one of the top programs in the #Eshow through a steady progression. One step at a time through one season at a time, and Laconia, NH is a community that has fully embraced their team.

Team of the Week (Maryland) | Episode 28

Josh Fusco is heading into his 2nd season as the Head Coach and General Manager of Team Maryland, and 5th year in the EHL. Prior to joining Maryland, Fusco served in the same exact role with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights. Overall, there are plenty of similarities between the Knights and Maryland, but also many differences. After helping lead the Knights to the 2018 EHL Frozen Finals, the program went away, and thus created a new challenge for Fusco. For the veteran coach, his main focus was staying in the EHL, and he took over a program that needed a fresh restart.
