CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Our salute to the Winter Olympics continued on NBC Charlotte Today. It was all about hockey this morning, as Larry spent some time with the Charlotte Checkers.
Captain of the team, Brett Sutter and teammate Zach Boychuk had some thoughts on the hockey competition at Sochi.
Both are from Canada, so their loyalties are with their “home team”. Zach and Brett picked the countries with the strongest competition in the Olympic hockey match-ups.
Larry also got a real work-out, as he donned goalie’s gear and “attempted” to defend the goal at TWC Arena.
Zach Boychuk gave him a real work-out, as Sprinkle took one shot after another. He actually managed to stop a few.
Thanks to Mike Lappan, Vice President of Communications and Outreach of the Checkers, for setting-up everything.
