The Hockey Show - Episode 171

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is back for the final show of 2015! There's no show on New Year's Eve due to UMFM's Year in Review show, and we're ok with that as both Beans and I have plans. The decision was made higher than us to kick us off the air that day, so we'll go with that. However, today's show is going to be fun as I get to welcome an incredible woman to the show who is home here in Manitoba for the holidays! Beans is hanging with family today, but he's going to call in later as The Hockey Show wishes everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

She won't be in-studio because she's with family, but I am proud, honoured, privileged, and humbled to welcome one of Manitoba's greatest women's hockey players to the show tonight as I'll have Miss Jenelle Kohanchuk on the phone! Jenelle plays for the CWHL's Toronto Furies currently, and she's working on an invite to the 2018 Olympics with Team Canada. We'll talk to her about everything that's gone on with her in the half-hour we have with her as she has other family commitments tonight! Perhaps we'll even find out what's on Jenelle's Christmas list this year. There's lots to talk about with Jenelle, so tune your radio in and have a listen tonight!

I also will run through many thank-yous to the vast number of people who have made our show better this year. We've had a ton of guests on the show, and I want to make sure they get a little recognition. There will be a pile of people to run through, so we'll work through that as best I can.

The phone lines are closed with Miss Kohanchuk on the program tonight, but make sure you tune your radio dial in the Winnipeg region to 101.5 on your FM dial or listen live between 5:30pm and 6:30pm CT on your web-enabled device at the UMFM webpage! Tweet me anytime with questions you may 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. One of Winnipeg's best players who should be an Olympian in 2018 is on The Hockey Show tonight only on 101.5 UMFM!
