In his day job, Bayne Pettinger represents high-profile NHL players like Jamie Benn, and Tyson Barrie. However, as an outspoken member of the LGBTQIA2S+ community, he also represents welcome progress in a sport that needs it. Pettinger spoke on ‘outliers’ overshadowing NHL Pride Nights, his own journey from publicly coming out 2 years ago, and the important work of the Alphabet Sports Collective; a non-profit he co-founded. Plus, client Tyson Barrie’s trade to Nashville, the human-side of being an agent, and a jersey mishap at the World Juniors.

In Headlines, the guys delve into the playoff picture: if any shake-ups could happen in the last games of the season, has the Penguins ‘window’ closed, and David Pastrnak’s scoring prowess. Matt Boldy’s sizzling hot-streak, Joonas Korpisalo backstopping the LA Kings, and Ray’s coverage of the Golden Knights vs. Oilers round-out the Western Conference discussion.

Betano’s Kris Abbott joins the guys and Ray puts Vegas casinos on notice with a big blackjack win. Kris commends the NHL schedule-makers for a PACKED Saturday slate that had him in the green. Would you bet against the Avs winning the west?? A heavily favoured Avs return to the cup final could be an opportunity for a savvy bettor. 

In Ask Ray & Dregs Anything, the guys answer YOUR questions! This week: the erasure of Raffi Torres’ favourite hit, hockey ‘switch hitters’, and Ray’s ice-shower advice. Plus, Ask R+D regular Bryan Mudryk chimes in with a golf question.
