The Hockey Show - Episode Six

It's Thursday on my calendar, and that means another rip-roaring episode of The Hockey Show was on the air tonight on 101.5 UMFM radio. We actually took a bit of a detour from yapping about all things hockey tonight as we had a special guest who joined us via phone all the way from Pensacola, Florida!

Pensacola Ice Flyers goaltender and former University of Manitoba Bisons goalie Steve Christie was our guest tonight as we caught up with the alumnus to find out where his hockey career has taken him. We chatted with him about completing training camp this week, playing in the AHL with the Manitoba Moose, Toronto Marlies, and St. John's IceCaps, his time in the SPHL with the Ice Flyers, his jump to the CHL where he played with the Tulsa Oilers and the Texas Brahmas, his accolades and honours from when he was playing with the Bisons, and some questions about superstitions, rituals, and what he has inside his water bottle on top of his net!

The podcast for this show will go up this weekend, and it's not to be missed. A huge "thank you" to Steve Christie for taking the time out of his day to speak with two hockey radio goons, and both Beans and I wish Steve nothing but the best as he begins his second season with the Ice Flyers!

Next week, it's The Hockey Show's Pledge-O-Rama show, and we'll be giving away a ton of stuff for people that pledge money to the station. We have some cool items to hand out, so please donate to the station, get yourself a tax receipt, and possibly win some awesome prizes! The Sega NHL '94 Tournament will be covered as well, so get entered if you're still waiting! Email me for details on how to get your name in!

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
