Episode #100: October 8, 2021
For the 100th Episode of the Puck Junk Podcast, Sal Barry is joined by Tim Parish, Blake Isaacs and Jim “Not the Goalie” Howard to talk all about NHL mascots. Which mascots are the best? The worst? Which mascots give us nightmares? Which mascot are we most likely to kiss? Plus, will the Seattle Kraken ever have a mascot? It’s 95 minutes of fun hockey talk.
