The Hockey Show - Episode 306

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced radio show that strictly talks hockey, continues with the Summer of Interviews, and we're joined by perhaps one of the most interesting people to ever put the skates on today. Her life and hockey playing days have taken her all over the map, but it's her everyday job that puts her into a category on her own as she may have one of the coolest jobs we've ever encountered here on the program. She recently brought home some hardware from Italy as she represented her home country of the United States of America in a hockey event, so let's get to meeting this amazing individual!

The Hockey Show is privileged and honoured to speak with 2018 World Inline Hockey Championship gold medallist Jetta Rackleff today after her success with Team USA in Italy! We'll speak with Jetta about being born in California and growing up in Oregon where she adopted hockey as her sport of choice despite being a star in a number of sports. We'll also get the skinny on moving across the country to go to school at the Rochester Institute of Technology and being a standout netminder for the Tigers, being drafted by the Brampton Thunder before being traded to the Boston Blades, earning a degree in chemical engineering, her long history with inline hockey, how she met her husband - a really cool story! - and more! Jetta's a pretty incredible woman, and we're happy to welcome her to The Hockey Show as a new friend of the show!
