FC HOCKEY: The Podcast

Peter Loubardias and Aaron Vickers connect with Robert Kron, the inaugural director of amateur scouting for the Seattle Kraken, in the latest FCHockey: The Podcast, powered by CDN (

Loubardias and Vickers discuss the craziness that was the 2020 NHL Draft when Kron was the director of European scouting with the Carolina Hurricanes, the unpredictability of the 2021 class, the limitations of scouting in 2021, Kron’s evolution from 12-year NHL veteran to longtime NHL scout, and the evolution of scouting over the course of Kron’s 13-year scouting career.


Dylan Guenther, the top NHL Draft eligible from the Western Hockey League (WHL), chats with FCHockey host Aaron Vickers about having his 2020-21 season put on hiatus — twice, as well as his mindset when finally hitting the ice again with the Edmonton Oil Kings and how he’s stayed positive through the most trying year of his hockey career.
