Your weekly San Diego Gulls podcast, Gulls In Flight, is taking off a couple days later than normal but believe us, it’s worth the wait! Join the “Voice of the Gulls” Craig Elsten and color commentator B.J. MacPherson as they broadcast from Gulls morning skate on Friday at Valley View Casino Center, breaking a little news about the Gulls lineup for the weekend while also discussing the impact of the NHL Trade Deadline on the team, and the improved play of wingers Nic Kerdiles, Brian McGrattan and Andrew O’Brien.
Then, on an “all goalies” edition of Gulls In Flight, you’ll hear first from the goalie coach of the NHL Anaheim Ducks as well as the AHL San Diego Gulls, Sudarshan Maharaj, better known as “Sudsie” to players and coaches. We caught up with Sudsie on one of his trips down to San Diego to talk about his role with the organization as well as scouting reports on John Gibson and Anton Khudobin.
And speaking of “Dobby”, the Man from Kazakhstan is our special player guest to wrap up the podcast. Khudobin joined Craig from the team’s Poway Ice training facility to talk about living in Siberia, the specifics of a goalie’s equipment, and what it’s like for a man to ply his professional trade halfway around the world from his home. It’s a fun and fascinating conversation you won’t want to miss. Worth the wait, it’s Gulls In Flight #18: Anton Khudobin!
