This week on the podcast, we are joined by UMD men’s sophomore center and co-leading scorer Justin Richards. He’s got eight goals and 17 assists on the season.

Growing up, Justin lived in many places as his father played professional hockey and then became an NHL coach. Justin tells us what it was like to grow up around professional hockey, how hockey in Ohio compares to hockey in Minnesota and what brought him to Duluth.
