Listen: Between the pipes with Bulldogs goalie Jojo Chobak
New episodes of the Bulldog Insider Podcast air every Thursday wherever you listen to podcasts.
“Jojo” is a name that Bulldogs fans are quickly becoming familiar with. With senior starting goaltender Emma Soderberg playing for Sweden at the 2022 Olympics in Beijing, Minnesota Duluth sophomore goaltender Violet “Jojo” Chobak has been in net for the Bulldogs. Recently, she helped UMD get their first win at Wisconsin since 2010.
In this week's episode, Chobak tells the News Tribune's Matt Wellens and My9's Zach Schneider what it was like learning to play hockey in Chicago and how she became a goalie. They discuss UMD's reputation as “Goaltending U," her relationship with Soderberg and what Olympic athlete she'd most like to meet.
KDAL’s Bruce Ciskie also stops by the podcast as he, Matt and Zach discuss the UMD men's game at St. Cloud State this past Tuesday, the long review of a St. Cloud State shootout goal and the 2022 Olympic games.
