Lokomotiv Yaroslavl Director of Player Development Ted Suihkonen and Metallurg Magnitogorsk Assistant Coach Mike Pelino join the third episode of Icecast 2.0, hosted by Gillian Kemmerer. With a background in neuroscience and a hidden musical talent, Suihkonen has been a major factor in Loko’s rebuild after tragedy struck the franchise in 2011. He discusses the success of his youngsters and approach to getting hockey players into the “flow state” to maximize their creativity and confidence.

A two-time Gagarin Cup champion under Mike Keenan and Ilya Vorobyov, Mike Pelino has had a front row seat to the KHL’s progress and development over time. In his eighth season, Pelino helped Metallurg to climb the Eastern Conference and finish the season in third place. He touches on the phenomenon that is Sergei Mozyakin, cultural differences in Russian locker rooms and some late-night karaoke sessions in Magnitogorsk.
