The game itself is sixty minutes long but a lot of preparation goes into each and every game. The players train on and off the ice with various coaches in order to be ready for the moment the puck drops. Hockey players at this level usually aren't taking time off during the off-season. The same goes for the Hitmen NCDC off-ice team of Play-By-Play announcer Bret Leuthner and Public Address announcer Matt Di Giacomo. Bret is the voice of the Sussex County Miners on and while Matt can be heard throughout Skylands Stadium as well as the New York/New Jersey Red Bulls at their 25,000 seat arena in Harrison, NJ.

As the Hitmen get ready to defend their 2021 - 2022 Dineen Cup Championship, Bret and Matt discuss the behind the scenes work that help make Hitmen hockey the best in the league along with a special surprise for Matt.
