The Hockey Show - Episode 227

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, returns to the comfy confines of the 101.5 megahertz location on your radio dial and across the internet at the UMFM website. It should be a fun show tonight as go over all the reasons why Ondrej Pavelec should have remained in the AHL, and there are quite a few. People who demanded his call-up from the Moose should be publicly ridiculed for their lunacy, and we may do a little of that tonight. There quietly were some side bets made between your hosts, so we'll go over why one host in particular not only bet against the odds, but may have inadvertently lost all credibility when it comes to his Pav-love.

Along with our Pavelec discussion, we'll discuss the Coors Light-Gatorade-Honda-DraftKings-Bridgestone-Oscar Meyer-Discover NHL Skills Competition. Seriously, every event and the entire event itself has a corporate sponsor. This is starting to get ridiculous. We'll touch on the NHL All-Star Game, some international hockey news as the 2017 Winter Universiade Games get underway this weekend in Almaty, Kazakhstan, throw out some updates from Aalborg, Denmark, talk about a great guy doing amazing work across the globe with charities, and Hayley Wickenheiser's retirement from on-ice action and what that means for hockey in Canada and across the globe. And just to appease TJ, we'll mention someone's birthday today. It's going to be a packed show from all corners of the globe, so tune in tonight at 5:30pm to join the action!
