Season 4, Episode 17: Linus Sandin and Garrett Metcalf of the Lehigh Valley Phantoms


To help promote the upcoming Emmaus High School Night at the Lehigh Valley Phantoms on February 19, 2022, this episode features two members of the team talking about their unique 9th grade experiences while chasing the dream of playing professional hockey. Linus Sandin and Garrett Metcalf have both followed a long path to reach playing in the American Hockey League and look back on their experiences up to this point with special host, Phantoms radio announcer Bob Rotruck.  

Sandin, originally born in Sweden, talks about how ingrained hockey was to his schooling experience while Metcalf shares how a decision made early in his high school career took him from home to pursue competitive hockey. Both interviews show the importance of focusing on a goal and doing everything possible in order to accomplish the desired outcome.  

Additional thanks to Amy Keller, Senior Creative Director for the Phantoms, for helping to facilitate these interviews as well Rotruck, who stepped in to hold the conversations based on player media availability.
