Founding 4 Podcast

The Founding 4 Podcast presents the seventh installment of The Original Eight limited series featuring Jordan Brickner. The Connecticut Whale defender discusses what brought her to the NWHL and why she ultimately chose to stay.

Show Notes

Connecticut Whale defender Jordan Brickner is the featured guest for the seventh installment of The Original Eight series. Brickner moved to Connecticut from Chicago for what she thought would be one season in the National Women's Hockey League. Today, she is one of eight players to suit up for all five seasons of the league.

Unfortunately, Brickner suffered an injury in December that cut her fifth season short. However, we spoke to her earlier this month and she seems to be in good spirits about the future of the Connecticut Whale.
