Amateur Hockey Podcast Ep. 02: Matt Plante, Mount 18s Head Coach
The second episode of the Amateur Hockey Podcast is out now, featuring Mount St. Charles Hockey Academy 18U coach Matt Plante. Matt’s team is one of the top ranked midget major teams in the country in Mount’s first year of operation as a AAA program. I also interviewed Mount 16 coach and hockey co-director Devin Rask back in the fall, which you can read by clicking here.
