The Hockey Show - Episode 178

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, returns tonight with our resident Calgary Flames fan to discuss a number of things in Calgary. Of course, he's been doing a ton of other stuff in the meantime, including moving to Montreal, but this hockey fan is a guy who we can't say enough good things about and he's always welcome on the old show. He's made multiple appearances before this one, but it's been a while since he's been on thanks to his uber-busy life!

He is a star on one of Canada's most acclaimed dramas in 19-2 where he plays Montreal police officer Ben Chartier. That role earned him the 2015 Shaw Media Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Continuing Leading Dramatic Role. He's started a brand new CraveTV and Comendy Network series that you might remember us talking about in Letterkenny where the good ol' boys of Letterkenny inform us of their country-fied problems. The Loop's Amber Dowling wrote an article about how he should be your next big TV crush last January, and his star continues to rise after parts in the Don Cherry movies on CBC, Elysium with Matt Damon, and Gozilla with Bryan Cranston. The Hockey Show is proud to welcome back the man seen above in his Letterkenny outfit, Mr. Jared Keeso!

Tonight, we'll get an update from Jared on his acting career, the work being done for 19-2's third season, getting Letterkenny up and off the ground, and any new projects he may have in the works. We'll find out how he's adapting to life in Montreal after moving there for 19-2, his favorite Montreal foods and restaurants, and whether he's become a true Montreal Canadiens fan. Being that he's still a huge Calgary Flames fan, we'll also get his thoughts on the playoff scene for Canadian teams, what the Flames may do at the trade deadline, and his reaction to Dennis Wideman's 20-game suspension for his abuse of an official.

Because Jared will be calling in tonight, the phones will be closed for calls! However, 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 have 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 welcome back a friend and one of Canada's best actors in Jared Keeso tonight on The Hockey Show only on 101.5 UMFM!

Let's talk about how the Islanders in Brooklyn is already a failure and let's move them home to Nassau or up to Quebec!

We can look at that, PK, but that article was published on Friday so we couldn't really talk about it until we knew about it. :)
