The Hockey Show - Episode Thirty-Eight

I need to know what you're doing tonight at 5:30pm CT. Why, you ask? Well, The Hockey Show moves to its new one-hour format tonight! If you missed the big announcement last week, The Hockey Show will air from 5:30-6:30pm CT on 101.5 UMFM every week going forward until they finally decide to cancel us. Which, hopefully, will be never. We're looking forward to bringing you, the listener, more hockey chatter and some crazy fun, so please adjust your schedules for the new 5:30pm CT start time!

We're extremely excited to have Jared Aulin on the show today! Jared played in the NHL with the Los Angeles Kings for a short time, but he was involved in one of the biggest trades in Colorado Avalanche history when his rights were traded to Los Angeles as part of the Rob Blake deal that sent the defenceman to Denver. We'll chat with him about those events, his time with the WHL's Kamloops Blazers, a woman he reportedly dated in Los Angeles, his time in the AHL, his playing days with the CIS Calgary Dinos, and his eventual move to playing hockey in Sweden with Leksands and Örebro! We'll also chat about him almost quitting hockey, and we'll find out about life in Sweden compared to North America. This should be a great interview, and we really want to thank Jared Aulin for giving us some time today!

From there, we'll try to squeeze in another four Survivor: NHL Playoffs exit interviews, and have some fun with those. We'll chat about the upcoming series between the last four NHL Stanley Cup Champions, and try to determine winners in terms of who we like. MJHL official Jeremie Gauvin will be there with us as well, so we'll see what he thinks of the upcoming series as well.

All of this and more on the one-hour version of The Hockey Show starting at its new time of 5:30pm CT!

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
