Erk To The Penalty Box is a new podcast that is based on the sport of ice hockey. Erk properly discovered the game in America in early 2014 thanks to watching the Western Hockey League. After returning to Australia, Erk discovered the Australian Ice Hockey League. Since discovering the game back home, Erk is physically located between the two Sydney based teams.


The podcast was originally going to be a project starting in 2015. However, Erk has written articles for the AIHL and Hewitt Sports including opinion, news, game previews and recaps. The podcast will commence after Erk returns from Europe at the end of June and will be weekly during the Australian season (April – September).
