The Dan K Show today announced that its sixth season with the U.S. Premier Hockey League (USPHL) has been mutually agreed upon and will officially begin today, Tuesday, May 19, at 6 p.m. EST with the launch of weekly off-season video content through June.
USPHL Midwest Director John Schwarz and Metro Jets General Manager/Head Coach Justin Quenneville will be featured as The Dan K Show’s first off-season episode special guests.

The Dan K Show Podcast
In addition to renewing the Dan K Show, the USPHL has agreed to become the exclusive sponsor of The Dan K Show’s newest audio podcast, The Dan K Show Presents: Junior Hockey, which premiered on Thursday, April 9. The Dan K Show Presents: Junior Hockey is available on all podcast platforms, and was created to inform, educate and guide players and their parents through the Junior Hockey experience.
For each weekly episode, which becomes available on Thursdays, Dan K and Lucas Jones are joined by guests from around the hockey world to discuss the game, recruiting, the intricacies of hockey organizations, and Lucas’ Educational Corner: a short academic advice segment, largely based on Lucas Jones’ work as an academic tutor and college advisor. On the Thursday, May 21, audio podcast, The Dan K Show Presents: Junior Hockey will feature United Collegiate Hockey Conference (UCHC) and USCHO.com Division III Rookie Of The Year Brandon Osmundson and UCHC All-Tournament selection John Moncovich - each of whom played five seasons with the Hampton Roads Whalers, ending their USPHL careers with back-to-back Premier National Championships – now of Utica College’s hockey team.
The Pioneers won 20-plus consecutive games to end the 2019-2020 season, were featured on ESPN’s “SportsCenter,” and were generally considered favorites to win an NCAA Division III National Championship before the COVID-19 pandemic.
When asked about The Dan K Show Presents: Junior Hockey, Dan K stated, "During what has been the most unique off-season the hockey world has seen, we saw a need for a more informative format of the Dan K Show. Our goal with this new product is to provide a tool for players and parents to better understand and navigate their Junior Hockey careers."
Upon the commencement of the 2020-2021 season, The Dan K Show will continue to be the official broadcasters of the USPHL on HockeyTV Games of the Week, while traveling across the country to bring Junior Hockey fans the best games from all levels of the USPHL. As the most-watched show in Junior Hockey, with over 25 million social media impressions, The Dan K Show will also continue to broadcast jewel events, such as the NCDC All-Star Game, USPHL 16U All-Star Game, playoff tournaments, and regional showcases. Dan K and Lucas Jones will return to their in-person broadcasting on Thursday, June 25 when the Dan K Show will do a live, social-distanced episode from the 2020 USPHL Detroit Combine. Additional information will be released on The Dan K Show social media platforms at a later date.
