“The Asterisk” is a serialized podcast about how events throughout the 2019-2020 NHL season will echo across the ice for generations. In this eight-part series, we chronicle the downfall of Don Cherry, what led to the undoing of the league’s highest-paid coach, how race is now being discussed in the locker rooms and front offices, and what the impact of the coronavirus will be on the league for years to come. Along the way, we interview players, coaches, and journalists to highlight the monumental impact the last 15 months had on the sport. Tampa Bay ultimately took home the 2020 Coronavirus Cup. Only one question remains: will they have an Asterisk next to their name?
