The Hockey Show - Episode 104

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is back with the final show of YEAR TWO on UMFM! I have to say it's been a helluva ride so far, and we're extremely thankful for all of your support. As you know, next week will be the Birthday Show, and Beans and I are working on some prizes, some fun stuff, and cake for next week's show. In fact, keep reading below to find out how you can be part of the show! We're gearing up for another big year of fun, so buckle up and get ready for another roller coaster ride!

One of the topics we'll be discussing tonight delves into Seinfeld territory as the ECHL's Bakersfield Condors will wear jerseys representing the puffy shirt Jerry Seinfeld was forced to wear in Season 5, Episode 2. The date and reason for the promotional jerseys? November 16, 2014 is the 25th anniversary year of the first episode of the Seinfeld TV show! As you can see below, the Condors are going all out on this promotion, ensuring that their players will, indeed, wear the puffy shirts. Personally, this is a pretty cool idea, and minor-league teams always seem to throw incredible promotional nights. If you're as fan, start saving your money for the puffy shirt jersey auction because I'm sure that these ones will go quickly!

We're also going to kick around the Penguins offering Dan Carcillo a tryout this year, Gary Bettman's dismissal of the expansion report, David Krejci's new deal with the Bruins and what that will mean in the future for Boston, the Jets signing Nikolaj Ehlers, the Jets extending their affiliation with St. John's through 2015-16, and we'll welcome back Columbus from her extended holiday from the show!

Tonight's episode of 3 Rounds Deep will actually be four rounds deep as Teebz, Beans, and Columbus predict the division winners in each NHL division! There will be some dogfights this season for top spot in each of the divisions, and we'll weigh in with our predictions coming out of the summer. While Beans and I suspect Columbus hasn't been paying attention to much hockey, we'll have some fun with this one.

A bit of a change tonight as we'll allow identical picks as division winners! Phone lines will be open at (204) 269-8636 (269-UMFM), and we'll hit Twitter and Facebook for everyone else to participate. If you want to toss some names in electronically, the Twitter and Facebook links are below where you can go 3 Rounds Deep!
