Forward Audra Richards joins the show to discuss her return to Minnesota, the highs and lows of her rookies season with the Metropolitan Riveters, and all the good food that can be found in the State of Hockey.
Richards talks about following in her father’s footsteps as a physical education teacher, being the youngest and arguably the most competitive member of her family, and how she and her team worked through adversity in the 2018-19 season.
