The Hockey Show - Episode 236

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, invades Winnipeg airspace with its sultry sounds as all three of Teebz, Beans, and TJ will be back tonight, and it will be TJ sitting in the pilot's chair tonight as he welcomes a guest for an interview that is near-and-dear to him. We often try to find guests who don't fill the traditional hockey guest personas. Tonight, we welcome a man who has played all over North America despite facing some pretty long odds, and he was one of the more feared men to ply his trade in a few of the toughest leagues in North America!

Now you might look at his picture to the left and say, "Wait a second, Teebz, that's not a hockey uniform," and you'd be correct. That's part of his story, though, as welcome Manitoban and indigenous hockey player Jason Bone to the show! From March 20-24, the University of Manitoba held Indigenous Awareness Week, and that's the conference that TJ was working at last week when he stepped aside from the show. To do our part at UMFM and on The Hockey Show, we are proud, honoured, humbled, and privileged to welcome Jason to the show to tell his story about growing up in Keeseekoowemin Ojibway First Nation and making it to play pro hockey! He's done some incredible stuff in his career, and that includes getting his Master of Arts degree at the University before joining the Indigenous Studies Program! Jason has a helluva story to tell, so I highly encourage you to join us tonight on the program as we talk about his life, his hockey career, his academic career, and much more!
