ABOUT THIS EPISODE
This week's episode features a program that has made a step forward with each and every year since entering the league. For the Vermont Lumberjacks, there is just one goal in mind, and that's the 2020 Frozen Finals.
Jim Mosso is the Head Coach of the EHL team, and serves as the General Manager for the entire organization, overseeing the Eastern Hockey League Premier (EHLP) team as well.
In his second full season with these responsibilities, Mosso has learned more and more with every game and every practice. On this week's episode, the two-time EHLP Coach of the Year talks about adapting from the playoff losses, and working towards earning more time together as a team.
Joining Mosso on the podcast this week, are two of the biggest contributors to this year's success, Logan DiScanio and David Reduzzi. Each player has followed their own path to this point, with this being DiScanio's third year with the Lumberjacks and Reduzzi in the middle of his rookie campaign.
While no other organization is located further north than the Lumberjacks, the team embraces the challenge and feels the extra time spent on the road only helps the group grow closer to one another.

Shortly after calling it a career as a player, Watt jumped right into coaching, and it has now all come full circle for him to end up back in the spot that he benefited from the most during his playing days.

Eric Lind and Steven Brown have been coaching together longer than any other duo in the league. When the EHL begins its 8th season this fall, Lind and Brown will be the only coaches to have been at the helm of a single organization for all eight years. As time has passed their bond has grown stronger, and their chemistry is similar to that of a pair of forwards who always know where the other one will go next with the puck. Along with the growth in chemistry has been a consistent effort of success, averaging over 25 wins and 10 NCAA Commitments per season, since the league was formed back in 2013.
