The preseason is over; it’s time to drop the puck on the 2016-17 American Hockey League season! Gulls In Flight is back, updated roster in hand, ready to prime the pump for Friday’s season opener against the Tucson Roadrunners. Join Craig Elsten and B.J. MacPherson as the boys look back at the end of the preseason, and the final round of cuts from Anaheim Ducks camp, setting the roster here in San Diego. Tune in to this week’s podcast for a full positional preview, as Craig and BJ work their way from the crease to the corners, setting expectations for how the Gulls could perform this season in the AHL Pacific Division. San Diego looks to have one of the deepest and most talented defensive corps in the league, but will they be able to manufacture enough offense to rise to the top of the standings?
Next, hear from four players looking to have a major impact on the Gulls’ fortunes this year! We catch up with veteran defenseman Nate Guenin, center Kyle MacKinnon, goalie Dustin Tokarski and rookie winger Kevin Roy about their hopes and expectations for the coming season.
Last but not least, two special announcements! A new LIVE postgame show from the Stella Lounge after Saturday night home games, and details on next Tuesday’s LIVE Gulls In Flight taping at Bay City Brewing! Enjoy Gulls In Flight S2E6: Season Preview Podcast!
