EPISODE 7: Ft. Rachel Doerrie on U SPORTS Hockey

A very big episode this week, as we welcome York Lions Director of Advanced Performance Rachel Doerrie to the show!

With Rachel we talk about everything from pizza, to recruits and how advanced hockey analytics helped the Lions this year. 

A bit about Rachel Doerrie: 

She is a graduate of the Laurentian sports management program, has worked with various U SPORTS and OHL teams, as well as Hockey Canada and one year with the New Jersey Devils of the National Hockey League. Away from coaching and tracking, she formerly wrote for various outlets, including  The Athletic and currently hosts the "Staff and Graph Podcast" with current writer for The Athletic, Ian Tulloch.
