The Hockey Show - Episode 220

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, returns to the trusty airwaves of 101.5 FM, the UMFM app, and the UMFM website tonight. Yes, we'll probably end up leading the show off with holiday-themed music because it's that time of year and we're two-and-a-half weeks away from the day of presents. I know that a lot of people are tiring of holiday music already since some stores and commercials have been playing it since Halloween, but The Hockey Show will do its part by playing a little Canadian-themed holiday music to kick off the show tonight!

Joining us on the program tonight are the three ladies seen to the left in previous teams' jerseys. That's Karissa Kirkup with the Maine Black Bears, Rachel Dyck with Team Manitoba, and Alana Serhan with the Melville Prairie Fire! All three are now, of course, Manitoba Bisons and have helped the team to a second-place standing after the first-half of the season, so we'll get their takes on what happened against Mount Royal in the final weekend, and their focus for the second-half and kicking off the schedule in Regina and at home against the top team in the nation in UBC. The ladies are also involved in a number of charitable and cool events this holiday season, so we'll get information on their whereabouts for the next few weeks. As for the hockey chatter, we'll talk concussion protocols and how it affected Connor McDavid, the complete buffoonery of the Las Vegas NHL franchise's trademark being rejected, an extremely cool honour for one of the women joining us tonight, and anything else we can squeeze in prior to the Jets and Rangers squaring off at MTS Centre!

Something else that should be at the top of your list when this holiday season 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 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 UMFM's donation of $100 cash and/or our donations of $100 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!
