Guitarist for Vancouver-based rock band The Orchid Highway, ‘Jamie’ is a grizzled veteran of many tours across Canada, the US, and the UK. (They took their sticks on tour for the shinny games!) A fan of the game, he began cheering for Swedes back in the WHA Winnipeg Jets days, and was overjoyed when Vancouver drafted the Sedins 2nd and 3rd overall. An opinionated bastard, Jamie always has something to say.



Episode 20 – The Douchebag Hour

After an admitted soft touch on the Markus Naslund episode, we here at Pucked in the Head felt it was time to get back to our cynical roots. Hence, we give you the All-Douche Episode of Pucked in the Head. What better way to celebrate the holidays!
