The Hockey Show - Episode Sixty-Seven

The Hockey Show, which I am thinking about rebranding as "The Best Damned Hockey Show" since Tom Arnold can't fight me on this, is going to be talking about a Christmas tradition tonight. While everyone is enjoying the leftovers from Christmas dinner and cleaning up all the holiday cheer left behind on December 26, there's a little tournament starting over in Malmo, Sweden as the 2014 World Junior Championships get underway! Being Canadians and hockey fans, you know Beans and I will be watching, so tonight's episode is the World Junior Championship Preview Special where we breakdown the teams, talk who will finish where, and, of course, how Canada will fare overseas in this year's tournament.

Joining us tonight is a man whose story and fifteen-minutes of fame was already covered here on HBIC, but it might be a good idea to link back to Steve Setka's moment of infamy! Steve is one of the members of the Jets Ice Crew who clean snow off the ice and a variety of other odd jobs at Winnipeg Jets games, and his highlight-reel moment came when Dallas Stars goaltender Kari Lehtonen dumped him in the corner during a commercial break! Steve will join us tonight as we get his thoughts on the World Junior Championships, how Canada will finish in this tournament, and who the surprise team may be in this event. And we'll talk about Steve's SportsCentre moment as well!

We'll chat up the 2013 Universiade Games that are going on right now in Trentino, Italy. The University of Manitoba has one player over in Italy as women's defenceman Caitlin MacDonald is helping the Canadian squad try to achieve their goal of a gold medal. They finished up their portion of the round-robin last night, so we'll see how they're doing, see how Caitlin is making out, and check on the men's event as well.

All this and more on tonight's episode of The Hockey Show on 101.5 UMFM at 5:30pm CT! Join us for some hockey chatter about these topics, and we'll take some calls about how you think the World Junior Championships are going to play out! See you tonight!

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
