The Hockey Show - Episode 172

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is back after all the holiday celebrations! Honestly, this five-day work week stuff is for the birds. It was difficult getting myself motivated on Monday to get back into the swing of things at the old workplace, but the past couple of weeks of hockey action has me raring to go tonight! We're gonna work through about 100 different topics - give or take a few - so buckle up, get yourself settled by the radio, and let's get ready to rumble!

Tonight, Beans and I will discuss the many hockey-related topics that have dominated headlines recently. These include the ten-game winning streak and Atlantic Division-leading Florida Panthers, the Winnipeg Jets and their .500 hockey, the trades and signings in recent days, the World Junior Hockey Championship in Helsinki and the fallout here in Canada, the Spengler Cup and Canada's victory in Davos, the Winter Classic and the dud in the TV ratings it's proving to be, how Winnipeg is "owed" a Heritage Classic and the possibility of it being played before January 1, the Moose and whether we're seeing any progress being made in the prospects, John Scott and the NHL All-Star Game rosters, and we'll squeeze in anything else that might fit into the hour. In other words, it's a busy evening of chatter, so get ready for another quick-paced show!

The phones are wide-open once again tonight, so call in and chat some hockey with us at (204) 269-8636 (UMFM)! 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 as well! 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. It's another action-packed episode of The Hockey Show tonight only on 101.5 UMFM!
