After a nice warmup skate, the Gospel of Hockey is set for the regular season schedule. Unfortunately, the NHL isn't quite ready, so co-hosts Matt Gajtka and Larry Snyder will continue to explore other ways to get your hockey fill. This week's subject is the ECHL, as Wheeling (W.Va.) Nailers broadcaster D.J. Abisalih joins the program to discuss the premier "AA" hockey league in America. The Nailers have just begun their 21st season in West Virginia after changing ownership and re-committing to Wheeling for the long term. How can the Nailers attract more Penguins fans from the Pittsburgh area to check out the ECHL? What does having a local owner mean for the relationship between the Nailers and the Ohio Valley community? How can Wheeling continue its recent run of on-ice success and make the playoffs for the third straight season? Listen as Matt, Larry and D.J. talk ECHL on the Gospel of Hockey!
