The Hockey Show - Episode Ninety-Eight

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, returns tonight with a guest, some interesting topics, and a great update from a friend of the show. As you're aware, Beans and I try to keep our ears to the ground when it comes to hockey and hockey-related events, and we're going to talk to someone in the business of hockey tonight as well as cover a few stories that have made headlines in the last week.

Tonight, Beans and I are honoured to welcome Mr. Jason Goulet of Top Shelf Hockey! Top Shelf Hockey makes high-quality hockey sticks in Winnipeg, and was founded by former Winnipeg mortgage broker Rod Westendorf some six years ago! Jason will drop by to talk about the company, give us some history on the company, promote some of their products, and chat some hockey! If you haven't heard about Top Shelf Hockey before this evening, you may want to give a listen as they produce quality sticks for fairly reasonable prices!

Tonight on 3 Rounds Deep, Teebz, Beans, and Jason will tackle a topic to which everyone can relate. It's a simple question: what arena, past or present, would you want to watch a hockey game in? There have been a lot of old barns that simply were magnificent in terms of their acoustics and game experience, but the modern lights, lasers, Jumbotrons, and pyrotechnics have their own charm if you prefer a more visual experience. Neither are wrong, so we'll discuss the three arenas each of the men would want to experience a hockey game in on tonight's 3 Rounds Deep!

If you wanna be a part of 3 Rounds Deep tonight, give us a call during the segment at 204-269-8636 (269-UMFM) and we'll put you on the air! Same rules as always as we can't repeat picks made by others and neither can you, so it will get a little tougher as people start participating. We'll start it off, then open up the phone lines and hit Twitter for everyone else to participate. If you want to toss some names in electronically, the Twitter link is below where you can go 3 Rounds Deep!

Going 3 ROUNDS DEEP tonight: where do you want to watch a game? You know what to do!

We'll also weigh in on the charges and suspensions handed out for the attack on officials during a game between Stonewall and Lake Manitoba First Nation on March 30, talk about the CWHL looking to expand, discuss the hiring of Jim Paek to try to bring the Korean Ice Hockey Association's standing back to respectable before the Olympics in 2018, update everyone on the recent playoff game played by the Dirk Digglers hockey team, and we have an update on Jared Aulin's summer and how his mom and sister are doing in their fights against cancer. It's going to be another busy show as we get closer to Show #100!

We're on the air at 5:30pm to tune in for some hockey fun! Hit us up at 101.5 UMFM on your radio dial in the Winnipeg region or you can listen live between 5:30pm and 6:30pm CT on your web-enabled device at the UMFM webpage! We'll be available via phone at (204) 269-8636 (269-UMFM), so give us a call and play 3 Rounds Deep or share your thoughts on any of the topics we cover! You can tweet us anytime you like by hitting us up at @TeebzHBIC on the Twitter machine. You can also post some stuff to Facebook if you use the "Like" feature, and I always have crazy stuff posted there that doesn't make it to the blog or show. We have lots to cover, so join us tonight on UMFM and be a part of the action!
