The Hockey Show - Episode 219

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, will be on the air with another live show tonight as we broadcast from The Hub Social Club on the UofM campus! Beans, TJ, and I will be sampling some of the great food and beverages that The Hub has available all night as The Hockey Show will be followed by the Oilers-Jets game on the majority of the TVs in the establishment! Come on down to The Hub Social Club tonight for some hockey talk and the Jets game!

We get you set with all the hockey stories and our spins on them. We'll talk about the Gerard Gallant firing in Florida, why it happened, why it shouldn't have happened, and where he may end up. We have a short interview with Shelly Anthis, a casting director, who needs some extras for a feature film scene being shot in Winnipeg on December 7. We'll get everyone set for the weekend set between the Manitoba Bisons women's team and the Mount Royal Cougars. And with the calendar turning to December, we'll have some good chatter on the World Junior Championship selection camp and the players named to it. There will even be a couple of shout-outs and some birthday wishes sent out, and we'll be talking about a new project starting on December 25 by one of our favorite guests! It's a heckuva show, so make sure you down to the The Hub Social Club and catch the show!

Something else that should be at the top of your list when it comes to supporting the Manitoba Bisons this weekend is the Holiday Hamper food drive! The Bisons women's hockey team is putting together a pile of hampers for the less fortunate this holiday season, and they want your help! The team is looking for non-perishable food donations or monetary donations that will go to making up baskets of food for Manitoba families!

You can bring non-perishable food items or money for a donation to the upcoming weekend series against the Mount Royal Cougars on December 2 and 3, or you can contact Bisons forward Karissa Kirkup to arrange for a pickup! Karissa can be reached at 204-851-4886 or by email at kirkupk3@myumanitoba.ca. This is an excellent cause, and it's one that TJ and I, as the voice of the Bisons, have supported already with a big donation! We'd encourage any and all people, businesses, and organizations to match our donation of $50 in non-perishable food to the Holiday Hamper drive! Thanks to all who donate, and to the Bisons women's hockey team for helping those that need a little help this holiday season!
