Shaky First Month for Laval | Press Zone ep 280

Welcome to The Press Zone for hockey prospects on Rocket Sports Radio! This premier podcast is featured on The AHL Report, and provides hockey fans with the latest news, analysis, and commentary regarding the Montreal Canadiens, Laval Rocket, and teams all around the AHL.

Our podcast hosts Rick Stephens (@AllHabs) and Amy Johnson (@FlyersRule) will provide information on the American Hockey League, as well as the ECHL, junior hockey leagues, international hockey, prospects, and potential NHL draftees.  It’s an informative and entertaining weekly show brought to you by a team of credentialed, knowledgeable hockey journalists!

Segment 1: Laval Rocket & Habs Prospects

  • It was a disappointing second half of the Rocket's six-game homestand, despite picking up two points last week. Let's take a look at Laval's performances against the Toronto Marlies and Lehigh Valley Phantoms, and talk about changes in the defense, injuries, and Cayden Primeau's slow start.

Segment 2: Around the AHL

  • AHL Hot Stove featuring Patrick Williams: It's Hockey Fights Cancer month! We'll take a look at league-wide initiatives, as well as get a picture of AHL standings through one month of the regular season. Plus, we'll introduce you to this week's Player of the Week (spoiler alert: Laval fans will be familiar with this name!), as well as October's players of the month.
  • Upcoming features this week at AHLReport.com
  • Check out the Canadiens Connection podcast!
  • Join Our Team!

Check out a new episode of The Press Zone for hockey prospects every Tuesday, where Amy and Rick talk about prospects in the AHL, ECHL, NCAA, OHL, and European leagues. They also take a closer look at other AHL teams, news, entertainment, and special events around the American Hockey League.
