The AHL All-Star Break is over and it’s time to get back on the ice as the San Diego Gulls make their push for a Calder Cup playoff spot! Join “Voice of the Gulls” Craig Elsten and color commentator B.J. MacPherson for a look at the week that was in Gulls hockey, as well as a preview of a big weekend ahead. San Diego lost another key veteran forward to an NHL call-up, but hope to get a couple more players back from injury sooner rather than later. The Gulls take on Stockton and Milwaukee this weekend, needing to turn around a recent home skid that saw the team go 0-4-1 at home in January. Next, Craig is joined by goalie Matt Hackett for a sit-down interview at the team’s training facility, Poway Ice. A season which began with promise devolved into illness and demotion for Hackett, but the veteran combined a good attitude with a tenacious competitive spirit, returning to the AHL and a prominent position splitting starts in goal for the Gulls. Craig and Matt talk about the goalie bloodlines in the Hackett family, the mental challenge of the position and why golf is a favorite hobby. Tune in for Gulls In Flight #15: Matt Hackett!
