The Hockey Show - Episode 112

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is back with a show packed with hockey goodness! We have a ton of stuff to cover tonight, so be prepared as we'll be moving at a solid pace tonight! We even have a listener's email to discuss, and it actually fits quite appropriately with some of the events seen this past week in hockey! Let's get to the details!

First off, we owe a pile of gratitude to everyone who helped out UMFM last week with their pledges as Pledge-O-Rama 2014 was a resounding success! Your pledges helped the station raise $36,155.12, some $8155.12 over our goal of $28,000! That is OUTSTANDING and AMAZING, ladies and gentlemen, and we cannot thank you enough. If you caught the show last week, you know that we broke through the $28,000 goal on The Hockey Show, so it was a big night for us. Again, we couldn't have done that without your support and contributions, and we want to be sure we thank our listeners. Thank you, and know that we appreciate your support of the station that puts our craziness on the air!

Tonight, Beans, Columbus, and myself will talk about the John Scott suspension and the Ducks-Sharks line brawl, the Chris Kreider hit on Jonas Brodin and how he escaped supplemental discipline, the John Moore hit on Erik Haula and how he got five games for his indiscretion, our listener email and how it relates to the suspensions and indiscretions seen, the oh-fer-October put up by the Carolina Hurricanes, the NCAA graduation rates and how it applies to NCAA hockey, the Bisons women's team sending a veteran player to the Universiade Games, the recent games against the Lethbridge Pronghorns and who has stood out for the women, and what to expect for the men's games this coming weekend. In short, we're gonna be busy, so tune in at 5:30pm for all the action!

The phones will be open and live for chatter tonight, so feel free to call at (204) 269-8636! Hit us up on 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! You can tweet us anytime you like by hitting us up at @TeebzHBIC on Twitter. 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.
