How SCSU Junior Jojo Chobak Got Her Nickname & Started Playing Goalie

JoJo Chobak has one of the more unique nicknames in women's hockey. Name another JoJo that you have heard of. Her given name is Violet, but we learn where her nickname came from, how it is typically only used by people in and around hockey. Chobak also talks about growing up in Chicago, how she and her two older siblings got involved in hockey. She discusses playing boys hockey and the differences in the way that boys and girls are coached. She also discusses playing for new head coach Brian Idalski and how she is able to joke around with him and how "he's actually a softy." A fun Huskies Hockey Insider podcast with host Mick Hatten. Chobak and the Huskies (2-6 WCHA, 4-6 overall) play a WCHA series this weekend at Bemidji State (1-7, 3-8-1). The teams play at 3 p.m. Friday and 2 p.m. Saturday at the Sanford Center (B1G+).
