A hockey guy through and through, Geoff is a perfect host for the station’s hockey talk show – Rink Wrap.
His passion and knowledge of the game at the local and pro level has translated into an entertaining and informative program each Wednesday afternoon through the hockey season. Geoff’s knack of finding interesting guests has helped to grow an audience of Ottawa Valley hockey fans who want to learn more about hockey from the grassroots level to the NHL and beyond.
For close to three decades, Geoff has been connected to the Pembroke Lumber Kings Jr A hockey club, wearing many hats including PA announcer at the PMC, trainer, community relations and marketing director, assistant coach and assistant GM. And he is now the Voice of the Lumber Kings on all TV and radio broadcasts.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a bigger Philadelphia Flyers on the planet, and the station expects to have Geoff on the airwaves until a job opens up for a radio voice in Philly.
Geoff and his wife Laurie call the Cobden area home.
Tune in each Wednesday during the hockey season at 5 p.m. for Rink Wrap, the station’s hockey talk show. Host Geoff Patterson will bring you up to speed on everything happening on rinks around the Ottawa Valley and beyond.
With Geoff’s connections in the hockey world, you’ll never know who he’ll be chatting with. The impressive list of people he’s interviewed on the show includes Sheldon Keefe, Bobby Clarke, Tim Kerr, Brian Propp, Bill Clement (see a pattern here, Philly fans?), Cassie Campbell, Bob McKenzie, James Duthie, Michael Landsberg, Jack Quinn, Liam McGuire, and the list goes on and on!
And there isn’t a Valley person plugged into hockey who hasn’t been on for a chat.
And remember – as Geoff likes to say, either you like hockey or you're wrong!
