The Hockey Show - Episode 223

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is back tonight with a couple of phone calls! We have our main Oilers correspondent back in the City of Champions to give us an on-the-scene update about what to expect from the Edmonton Oilers when they host the Los Angeles Kings tonight. TJ will have a full report from somewhere near Rexall Place in the opening few minutes of the show as we get caught up with him. For the remainder of the show, we'll speak to a Manitoba legend when it comes to coaching as he's won all sorts of accolades and earned achievements at the MJHL level, the CIS level, the WHL level, and on the international stage!

The man to the left is current Brandon Wheat Kings assistant coach Don McGillivray, and we are thrilled that he's joining us tonight! Don has basically seen it all in his coaching career having coached five different MJHL teams, becoming the head coach for the University of Manitoba Bisons men's hockey team, joining the Prince Albert Raiders as an assistant coach before taking over the head coaching position, and working with Hockey Canada and leading the Canadian entry at the U17 Hockey Challenge. There were accolades and championships, highs and lows, some characters both on and off the ice, and a few moments that I'm sure he hasn't forgotten over his career, and we'll talk to Mr. McGillivray about a number of these things tonight on the show! You don't want to miss this one as we climb inside one of the most distinguished coaches to ever come out of the Keystone Province!
