FC HOCKEY: The Podcast

Peter Loubardias and Aaron Vickers connect on the first episode of FCHockey: The Podcast, featuring Calgary Flames director of amateur scouting Tod Button and 2020 NHL Draft eligible Jake Neighbours of the Edmonton Oil Kings.

Neighbours, one of the top prospects for 2020 from the Western Hockey League, discusses what it’s like as a prospect without having a set date for the draft, how he’s managing Zoom interviews with NHL teams and what he’s doing to stay in shape despite social distancing efforts and no combine to prepare for.

Button, in his 23rd year with the Flames, goes deep on the difficult challenges of preparing for the draft without some of the season’s most important events, setting up shop remotely with his team of scouts, and his impressions of the 2020 NHL Draft class.


FC Hockey’s Josh Bell chats about uncertainty, expectations and what’s to come with NHL Entry Draft with prospect Carter Savoie of the Sherwood Park Crusaders.
