Battle of Ontario - Episode 1 with Ian Mendes and Gus Katsaros

Ian Mendes and Gus Katsaros join Callum Fraser and Alec Brownscombe this week on the show to discuss Clarke MacArthur, leaked NHL Emails, Zack Smith and more.

Last time I mentioned a new radio show and podcast here on Silver Seven, it was under a different title. Well, the latest name is going to stick. I promise.

The Battle of Ontario Radio Show and Podcast is a project Maple Leafs Hot Stove founder Alec Brownscombe and I have officially launched.

On our inaugural show, we were joined by TSN 1200 Host Ian Mendes and McKeen's Hockey Director of Analytics and Pro Scouting Gus Katsaros. On the Senators side of things - which you'll most likely be interested in the most - we talked about Clarke MacArthur's concussion problems, Zack Smith's year of goal scoring and the season it's been for the Senators as a whole.

So, without any further ado, we hope you enjoy the first edition of the Battle of Ontario.

The show airs 6 p.m. EST on Ottawa-area radio station CKDJ 107.9, and the podcast will be posted every Sunday morning.

Look for an announcement on Twitter later in the week to see who will be on the show next episode!
