Last week on Around the Rink, Dan Rice and Allie Morse were joined by former Buffalo Beauts General Manager Nate Oliver.

Oliver told us a lot of insights about going from journalist to community relations manager to general manager of a pro team in his hometown, and all that comes with it. He also clued us in on some behind-the-scenes classic stories from the failed bubble in Lake Placid for the NWHL’s sixth season, and a bunch of others.

Also during the nearly two-hour conversation the former GM gave us his all-time Beauts starting lineup, gave us some insights about contract negotiations, and of course, answered a litany of questions from our fantastic audience.
