The Hockey Show - Episode 120

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is back on the air tonight at 4pm CT once more! I know it's Christmas, so I want to wish everyone the merriest of Merry Christmases this year, and I hope you'll join us on UMFM for some hockey chatter tonight. It should be a fun show as we have a special guest coming on - no, not Santa Claus - and we'll chat some hockey with him!

You may not recognize the man to the left, but he has a lineage of hockey in his family and he was a first-round pick of the Montreal Canadiens! That's Terry Ryan, and, while his hockey career didn't pan out as he had hoped, he's been doing a lot of cool stuff in the meantime including acting, writing a book, and playing high-level senior men's hockey! We'll talk to him about his short NHL career, his other professional hockey stops, his skill as a ball hockey player, his family's legacy in hockey, and everything else he's been doing! Terry's a busy guy, so you don't want to miss this interview if you enjoy listening to a funny guy tell stories about his life!

We'll also talk about the World Junior Championships kicking off in Toronto and Montreal, what Canada's chances of bringing home a gold - or any - medal are, and we'll look at some of the players worth keeping an eye on during this tournament. We'll talk a little about the Spengler Cup as well as we look at Team Canada's chances in Davos, Switzerland. And we'll talk of simpler times like the image below from The Saturday Evening Post!
Happy Holidays!

Being that it's Christmas and we have Mr. Ryan on, the phones will be closed. You can hear all the interviews on 101.5 UMFM on your radio dial in the Winnipeg region or you can listen live between 4:00pm and 6:30pm CT on your web-enabled device at the UMFM webpage! You can tweet me anytime you like by hitting me 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. There are lots of ways for you to interact with The Hockey Show!

Merry Christmas to all from Hockey Blog In Canada and The Hockey Show!
