The 4th Line WHL Cast #4 – The WHL Championship

With the WHL Championship about to start Andy, Carl and Ryan are back with a preview! But first, Andy has good news about a scary situation that happened to him after game 6 in Tri-City. We’re thankful that everyone is healing up after the accident!

The Everett Silvertips and Swift Current Broncos are ready for the WHL finals, but first we take a look at how they got there. Swift Current had tough matchups the first 2 rounds, facing Regina and Moose Jaw and each series going 7 games, while Everett won each of their first two series in 5 games.

In the third round, Carter Hart stumbled for Everett, while Swift Current used their depth to beat the Lethbridge Hurricanes, leading us to the finals.

With the obvious Carter Hart/Stuart Skinner matchup in net, which goaltender is likely to have the best series? Outside of the net, does Everett has what it takes to beat the depth of Swift Current?

The WHL Bantam Draft is this week. Outside of the great names being drafted, what else can be expected from the teams that loaded up on draft picks at the trade deadline. We’ll all find out Thursday!

The 4th Line Podcast is a weekly hockey podcast hosted by Carl Landra and Joel Schnell. Every week they share their unique and fun take on what is happening in the world of hockey. While they don’t take themselves too seriously, they have a typical no 4th line attitude: what they lack in finesse, they make for in being willing to go to the corners and work hard to get the job done.
