SEASIDE HEIGHTS, NJ – The Power Play Break took an opportunity to change locations in this edition of the show. Chris Riley and Ricky O opted to hit the Jersey Shore and Seaside Heights boardwalk to interview Stephen Gionta.
In this first installment, Gionta talks about his beginnings in hockey and his being dragged to hockey rinks as the youngest of three kids.
In this episode, Gionta talks about his brother’s (Brian) success and path to the New Jersey Devils.
Once again, the listener is afforded a more personal connection to the hockey player in this interview as Riley takes us through the stages of development of a pro player in an easy process that gets Gionta to open up without feeling pressured.
This is a great piece as Gionta finishes off this first installment with the anxiety and fears and all the emotions of heading off to college on his own.
