SoCal Hockey Talk Comes To XTRA 1360

The San Diego Gulls and its flagship radio partner, iHeartMedia San Diego, are launching SoCal Hockey Talk, a weekly 60-minute hockey radio show airing each Monday from 6 p.m. - 7 p.m PT!

Hosted by Gulls play-by-play announcer Andy Zilch, SoCal Hockey Talk is dedicated to the sport of hockey, with a strategic focus on the hockey landscape in Southern California. The show will also highlight the impact of the various hockey organizations and their players have had on the region, with an added focus on both the Gulls and Anaheim Ducks organizations.

The 60-minute show will feature insightful commentary about the NHL and AHL, San Diego Gulls, Anaheim Ducks, interviews with current and former players and coaches with ties to Southern California, hockey executives, hockey insiders and opportunities for callers to share their opinions.

Upcoming Shows: Monday, Feb. 22

Guests for our first show include Hockey Hall of Famer Chris Chelios and U.S. Women’s National Team forward Annie Pankowski!

Chelios, a Southern California resident, played 26 seasons in the National Hockey League (NHL) from 1984-2010, matching Gordie Howe’s record for most NHL seasons played. Chelios holds the NHL record for most games played by a defenseman (1,651) as well as most career playoff games played (266) and was named one of the ‘100 Greatest NHL Players’ in 2017 as part of the league’s centennial anniversary. 

Pankowski has appeared in three International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) Women’s World Championships with the U.S. Women’s National Team, winning gold medals in each appearance (2015, 2016, 2019). Pankowski, an Orange County native, was the first California-born and trained player to make the Team USA Under-18 Women's National Team, winning a silver medal at the 2012 IIHF Under-18 World Championship.
