The Hockey Show - Episode 150

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is starting to get geared up for the hockey season! Part of getting ready is knowing your opponents and we're proud, honoured, and privileged to feature a guy who has scored a pile of AHL goals and who will be coming to town to try to derail the Manitoba Moose's efforts to make the 2016 Calder Cup Playoffs. He's played in a bunch of big games, moved a few times only to find himself back where he started, and we're thrilled to have him join us on The Hockey Show tonight!

Ladies and gentlemen, we are proud to bring to you the man to the left who is under contract with the Carolina Hurricanes and Charlotte Checkers! Mr. Zach Boychuk will join us on The Hockey Show tonight as we get to know a division rival's sniper! He's won the Willie Marshall Award once for leading the AHL in scoring, and he's been a part of some incredible Team Canada rosters that are responsible for a pile of gold in this country! We're going to talk to Zach about growing up in Airdrie, Alberta, his time with the WHL's Lethbridge Hurricanes, being drafted 14th overall by the Carolina Hurricanes, spending time in Albany, Charlotte, Raleigh, Pittsburgh, and Nashville, and a pile of other stuff that Zach's done in his ten-year career thus far.

Of course, we also like to toss some softball-type questions at our guests, and Zach will get no special treatment. We may ask him about his favorite TV show, his favorite movie, his pregame meal choices, the last song he listened to on his iPod or in his car, what he'd be doing if he wasn't playing hockey, favorite NHL player(s) growing up, and much more. It's going to be fun to learn about one of the Moose's top opponents this year!

The phones will be closed with Zach Boychuk joining us by phone. To hear this great interview, tune in tonight 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 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. We're excited to have Carolina Hurricane Zach Boychuk join us tonight only on The Hockey Show on 101.5 UMFM!
