The Hockey Show - Episode 230

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is on the road today as we broadcast from an entirely different province! Your humble hockey program is out east as we invade the city of Kenora as part of Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada this weekend! We are beyond excited to bring you the show - and more! - from the city of Kenora as we get ready for a fun-filled, action-packed day that will expand beyond the borders of our one-hour timeslot! You're going to want to be near an internet-enabled device today because The Hockey Show is going mainstream!

We are honoured and humbled to be welcomed to the city of Kenora to participate in Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada. It isn't often that a show like ours is invited to play on the big stage, but, like any call-up from the minor leagues, we're gonna give it everything we have under the bright lights! Tonight, we'll bring you our normal crazy hockey chatter that will include discussion about Claude Julien being hired by the Montreal Canadiens, Gustav Nyquist's and Antoine Vermette's indiscretions, did Alex Chiasson's spear deserve a major and a game misconduct, the passing of Mike Ilitch, and we'll go over all your Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada events happening in and around the Kenora area!

But we're only getting started, folks. If you tune in on the UMFM Second Stream found on the UMFM webpage at 5pm, I'll be running down some exclusive content from the events happening earlier in the day in Kenora, and we'll carry past the 6:30pm mark on the Second Stream as Sportsnet's Ken Reid joins us for a quick chat prior to the NHL/Kenora hockey alumni game happening at the Kenora Rec Centre tonight! Ken has had a storied career as the pride of Pictou, Nova Scotia, and we'll chat with him about his time on the anchor desk at Sportsnet as well as being an accomplished author!

At 7:30pm on UMFM's Second Stream, we will bring you the first-ever broadcast of an NHL alumni game on UMFM as names like Lanny McDonald, Darcy Tucker, Mark Napier, and Carey Wilson suit up against Kenora hockey alumni such as Mike Richards and Rick St. Croix! Joining the alumni teams will be distinguished guests such as Jets owner Mark Chipman, Hockey Night in Canada's Ron MacLean and Scott Oake, and Sportsnet's Ken Reid. Rounding out the alumni will be local Kenora hockey alumni, and we'll be bringing you all the action from the Kenora Rec Centre as the two teams have a little fun on the ice prior to Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada kicking off on Saturday!
