In this week’s episode, Connecticut Whale forward Anya Battaglino joins us and gives us the least-hockey-player-like interview ever. She was charming, she was enlightening, and she was honest. We talked about her second season in the NWHL, her team’s growing confidence in their ability to overthrow the powerhouse Boston Pride, the league’s upcoming trip to Pittsburgh for the All-Star Game, and she speaks about her involvement in the secret NWHL conversations after the salary cuts were announced. We even asked Anya what she and the other players thought of commissioner Dani Rylan. We got answers to everything, and we fell in love with Anya Battaglino. So will you!
