Rochester Institute of Technology was the first Division I team to cancel its 2020-21 season but also the first to restore it.
Hosts Jim Connelly and Ed Trefzger talk with RIT head coach Wayne Wilson about the process that led to the restoration of this year’s campaign, what he expected this season from his team and what he learned about the Tigers from a weekend split against Clarkson. We also discuss the Atlantic Hockey pod schedule and look ahead at games this weekend against Niagara.
