The Hockey Show - Episode 215

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is back in the studio tonight as we settle in for November. There's a lot to talk about from the first month of NHL action, some news out of the women's hockey world both at the professional and CIS levels, and we'll mention the Cubs and how it relates to hockey, specifically the Toronto Maple Leafs. On top of this, we want your phone calls tonight as we'll as a very important question below the show preview. Ok, it's not super-important, but it might be fun to discuss.

Notice that none of our show has anything to do with next week's US election or the Chicago Cubs. If you're tired of hearing about both, tune in tonight!

Thanks to minor-league baseball's Binghamton Mets, we now have the Binghamton Rumble Ponies. Yes, the RUMBLE PONIES. What the heck is a rumble pony? Tonight, we'll discuss dumb minor-league names like the Swamp Rabbits, the Ice Anythings, and the Fog Devils. We'll toss out some good vibes and wishes to Craig and Nicholle Anderson as Nicholle battles cancer. We'll chat about how the Habs keep rolling, the non-Matthews NHL Rookie of the Month, Shannon Szabados and the drama surrounding her dismissal from the SPHL's Peoria Rivermen, the tightly-contested Metropolitan Division, Detroit finding wins through the ghost of Jimmy Howard, Dallas being a disappointment in the standings and how they simply can't score, the Manitoba Bisons women's dropping two games to fall into second-place at the hands of top-ranked UBC, and we'll talk about Charlene Labonté planning her future out long before her career is over!

Your phone-in question of the night: Labonté is working on becoming a chef. What everyday profession would you like to be doing if you weren't already employed? Get your phone calls in tonight or tweet at me with an answer!

PODCAST: November 3, 2016: Episode 215
NOTE: There's a bit of a change as we got word of a hockey tournament attached to a music festival! We meet RoseAnna Schick in the first 20 minutes as we are introduced to Breakout West, a western Canadian music festival that features an all-women's hockey game called the Double-D Cup!

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
