In our latest episode of Celly in Seattle, we welcome Ben Baldwin of The Athletic Seattle (@guga31bb on Twitter) to talk about the upcoming Seattle NHL team and his beloved Washington Capitals.

Celly in Seattle is a hockey podcast hosted by Seattle Sin Bin writers Doug Mellon, Rebeca Moloney, and Sean Clement. Our goals with this podcast are to keep you updated on Seattle NHL news and to help grow the love of hockey in Seattle before the puck drops in 2020.

Here’s what we covered this week.

Tacoma News Tribune Article Rant - 01:00

Last week, an article in the Tacoma News Tribune argued that Oak View Group is using the NHL to try and fill the void left by the Seattle Supersonics. The author also questions whether a new arena can support both the NBA and the NHL at the same time. We kicked off the podcast by talking about why he’s wrong about everything.

Local Hockey Shoutouts (WHL, BCHL, WWFHA) - 08:40

Unfortuately, the Everett Silvertips are facing elimination... but on the other hand, Seattle Sin Bin writer Dan Morse got to hang out with Seahawks legend Walter Jones during a Silvertips game this week!

Shout out to the Winnachee Wild on winning the Doyle Cup! On the pod, we talked about the BCHL and the upcoming Royal Bank Cup.

The Western Washington Female Hockey Association is raising funds for their girls hockey scholarship! Be sure to donate and help make hockey more affordable for girls in the Seattle area.

Ben Baldwin Interview - 30:34

Ben Baldwin of The Athletic joined us to talk about how he started following hockey, his Washington Capitals fandom, and obligatory Seattle NHL team name and color speculation. We also tried to figure out the best Seattle goal song.

Listener Questions - 55:49

We love answering your questions!

Three Stars - 1:21:20

Ben, Doug, and Rebecca ended the podcast with our Three Stars (our favorite hockey people/moments) of the week.

Keep sending us questions to answer on the pod! We love talking hockey with you.
