“This is a wonderful opportunity for XM listeners to connect with the stars of hockey, past and present,” said Joe Thistel, program director of NHL Home Ice, “and we couldn’t have picked a better subject and role model to kick off the Hockey Confidential series than Olaf Kolzig.”
Kolzig, the 37-year-old goaltender who is the longest-tenured player in Capitals history, taped the show in the XM studios in Toronto when the Capitals visited the city Oct. 28. He and Laughlin covered a variety of topics, including the current Capitals team, his charity work and his playing career in junior hockey, the minor leagues, Europe, the Olympics and the NHL. The show closed with Kolzig fielding questions from a studio audience.
Kolzig is the first guest on Hockey Confidential, a new show in the spirit of other XM shows like Artist Confidential and Baseball Confidential.
