The Hockey Show - Episode 269

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced radio show that strictly talks hockey, returns to the 101.5 FM frequency and the internet airwaves tonight with a special in-studio guest! We're always thrilled to have great guests in-studio, and this man's career saw him criss-cross North America and the globe on his professional hockey adventure! He did spend parts of two seasons with the Manitoba Moose before returning here where he's been honing his skills in coaching! Tonight, we get to meet one of the men I used to watch when the AHL was big hockey in Winnipeg as Beans and I welcome Josh Green to the show!

First off, we'll do a little celebrating with Josh tonight as he celebrates his 40th birthday today! After we enjoy cake, we'll talk to Josh about his life, his career, his many stops in that career, an injury or two, some old coaches, some teammates, and more! Josh had a fascinating career in which he played with some of the greatest players to ever suit up in the NHL as well as being coached by men who went on to have outstanding careers of their own. We'll also get an update on what Josh has been doing with his time after the game as he's been a busy guy with two little Greens running around!

For those that aren't aware, Josh played with the Manitoba Moose during the lockout season in 2004-05 before Vancouver signed him. He stuck around in Manitoba and even got his first letter in his professional career here as he was named an alternate captain in 2005-06 with the Moose. All said and done, Josh put up 28 goals and 43 assists to go along with 105 PIMs in 102 regular season games with the Moose, but he always shone brightest in the spring. In the AHL playoffs, he scored 14 goals and added ten assists in 24 playoff games. It's not often you find guys who step their games up in the playoffs, but Josh Green was one of those exceptional players for the Manitoba Moose!
