The Hockey Show - Episode 270

Happy American Turkey Day, folks! The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced radio show that strictly talks hockey, is back for more fun tonight as Beans and I go over all the news from the last couple of weeks that has happened in the world of hockey. There have been some major stories, so we'll dissect them, provide our takes on the topics, and see if we can find agreement on the final decisions based on these topics. We have some announcements to go over, we have some international hockey news, some NHL news, some USHL news, a trivia question for a prize, and some news on the University of Manitoba Bisons to cover tonight, so hunker down 'round the ol' radio and get ready for The Hockey Show!

Well, those Russians are at it again. Beans and I will discuss the ongoing battle between the International Olympic Committee and Russia, and what this has meant for players in the KHL, specifically non-Russian players. There may also be future sanctions from the IIHF if the KHL decides not to play nice with international hockey's governing bodies. We'll chat about Ken Hitchcock blowing the whistle on the injury game, the Winnipeg Jets at the first NHL checkpoint, a Jets goalie who could be the next sniper, Radko Gudas' ten-game break, we have some announcements about future shows, and we'll run down what's happening on campus here and across the country as the Bisons men's and women's hockey teams get set for another weekend of action. Oh, and we have a trivia question we'll throw out around the middle of the show, so you may want to listen for that if you like free prizes!
