The Hockey Show - Episode 152

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is back with our last show of 2015 featuring the one and only Columbus! Our intrepid reporter is back home in the US-of-A, and we'll call down to get her take on a few things before she leaves for South Korea to continue her education! I have no idea how that's going to work, but we have a special assignment for Miss Columbus, and we'll break that to her tonight!

As you can see to the left, there's a new cover for EA Sports' NHL '16. The previous cover had Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane on it, but Patrick Kane's legal issues forced EA Sports to reconsider his inclusion on the cover. With Columbus on the phone, we'll get her perspective on the Kane saga as it stands, we'll discuss new events and details that have been released, and we'll have a discussion about consent because it needs to be said being that we're a campus radio station. Not only are we a hockey-themed show, but we also have a responsibility to our student body to discuss relevant topics that may affect them. This is one of those topics as consent and rape need to be pulled out of the shadows when it comes to having a mature discussion.

We'll also discuss Auston Matthews decision to play in Switzerland, Jon Blum's decision to play in Russia, the NHLPA filing a grievance over Mike Richards' terminated contract, Jarret Stoll getting a contract with the Rangers after being found with drugs, and anything else that comes up in discussion. It's going to be a busy show, and we're always looking forward to your phone calls about any of these topics or anything else from the hockey world!

The phones will go live at 5:30pm CT, so give us a call at 204-269-8636 (269-UMFM)! Make sure you 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. It's time for a meaningful and mature discussion about Patrick Kane's situation, and you'll get that tonight on The Hockey Show only on 101.5 UMFM!
