The Hockey Show - Episode 202

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, returns to the airwaves tonight with zero - ZERO - hall-of-fame discussions in any manner. While we poke fun at the rant made last week about hall-of-fame ideas in general, there are some topics tonight that will get squeezed into a condensed format due to the interview that was pre-recorded last week thanks to some flight plans. Tonight's interview is with a guest you should be familiar with if you watched the last two Winter Olympiads or followed Bisons women's hockey in any capacity last season. Prior to that interview, however, we have a couple of things to discuss!

She's headed home to Finland for some rest and relaxation prior to the University of Manitoba Bisons women's hockey team joining her for a European pre-season swing through Finland and Sweden (and maybe more), but Venla Hovi gave us some time last week in a pre-recorded interview where she answered the $100,000 - why Winnipeg? She has a good answer, but you might be more interested in what her favorite Finnish word is! She explains all that and more tonight on The Hockey Show as we get to know an Olympian on the eve of the 2016 Rio Olympic Summer Games!

Teebz, Beans, and TJ will kick off the show with some interesting topics. The Winnipeg Jets are expected to unveil the Heritage Classic jerseys that will be worn by both the Jets and Oilers on Friday at noon in the Manitoba capital. What do the guys think they'll be wearing? Along with that, there are new Team Canada jerseys (thanks, Nike), the Oilers hiring Keith Gretzky from the Bruins, PK Subban raises a ton of dough for the Montreal Children's Hospital while cracking a few jokes at his former club's expense, the Delaloyes have a total from the Super Alyx Charity Golf Tournament (it's impressive!), and the Smilezone Foundation - led by former NHL star Adam Graves - saw their golf tournament do extremely well too!

With Venla's interview playing, the phone lines will be open, but we may have to discuss your comments next week. Make sure your radio in the Winnipeg region is set 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!

Email all show questions and comments to! 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 chat with Bisons forward Venla Hovi and discuss a few key stories in and around this station and city on The Hockey Show tonight only on 101.5 UMFM!
