The Hockey Show - Episode 203

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, returns tonight with a show that is entirely open to phone calls and discussions! Yes, we realize that ice hockey takes a backseat to the major event happening in Rio de Janiero right now, but we can talk about a hockey player who is actually in Rio! There have also been a couple of other stories happening on rinks elsewhere across the planet, so we'll get caught up on those stories as well!

Leading off tonight's show, we'll talk about a great charity as Dairy Queen holds Miracle Treat Day today where net proceeds from every "Blizzard" ice cream treat sold goes towards helping local children's hospitals including the Children's Hospital here in Winnipeg. I'll have ice cream with me as the show kicks off, so we'll promote that because the Children's Hospital does a ton of amazing work here in Winnipeg. We also have a nice story about Friend of the Show Rhonda Galloway as her work is being promoted thanks to a contest win. Once we wade through that, we have an announcement to make where you can be part of the show next week, we talk about the breaking news of Patrick Roy leaving the Colorado Avalanche, we'll talk Heritage Classic jerseys and rosters, we'll give our takes on Damir Ryspayev's insane craziness in the KHL, and we'll talk about the amazing job the Canadian women are doing in Rio and how one young lady surprised everyone, including her brother who plays in the NHL!

The phone lines will be open, so grab a Blizzard, tune your radio in the Winnipeg region is set to 101.5 on your FM dial, and give us a call. You can also 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.

Rio, Blizzards, throwbacks, and craziness are on the docket for tonight's show only on The Hockey Show and only on 101.5 UMFM!
