O on the X
Almost as soon as we got off the plane in Toronto a few Sundays ago, Nate Ewell and I accompanied Caps goaltender Olie Kolzig to the XM satellite radio studios in Toronto so he could be the guest on a brand new XM hockey show.
Kolzig is featured in the first episode of Hockey Confidential, a new hour-long show that debuts on XM Radio’s NHL Home Ice (Channel 204) on Monday, Nov. 19, at 11 p.m. The show, which features Kolzig and host Scott Laughlin, will be re-aired seven times next week.
The complete schedule for Hockey Confidential with Olie Kolzig (all times Eastern):
Monday, Nov. 19 11 p.m.
Tuesday, Nov. 20 8 p.m.
Wednesday, Nov. 21 7 p.m.
Friday, Nov. 22 3 p.m.
Saturday, Nov. 23 10 a.m.
Sunday, Nov. 24 2 a.m.
Sunday, Nov. 24 3 a.m.
Sunday, Nov. 24 6 p.m.
“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 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. It’s a terrific program, the format is strong and Laughlin is excellent at asking the right questions and moving things along. Caps and hockey fans alike won’t want to miss this one.
