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.
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.
