A Busy Summer Planned

I've been asked by a number of people if I'm taking the summer off with the Washington Capitals potentially finishing off the Vegas Golden Knights on Thursday in the Stanley Cup Final. If you weren't aware, this is the sixth season of The Hockey Show, and we have not once taken a summer off. So if you believe that we're taking a summer off this season, you're wandering down the wrong path. Instead, Beans and I are going to ratchet up the show a few notches by catching up with a pile of our favorite guests and welcoming a few new friends as well!

First, we'll be welcoming back the three ladies shown above as Sami Jo Small, Toni Ross, and Fielding Montgomery will all return for a show! Sami Jo Small played with the Toronto Furies last season, Toni Ross was a member of the Calgary Inferno, and Fielding Montgomery was part of the Clarkson Cup-winning Markham Thunder! We have lots to discuss with them as we get caught up with these phenomenal women from the first time we had them on the show!

We'll meet some new guests who we hope will be repeat guests as well! Delayne Brian of the Calgary Inferno, Mikayla Ogrodniczuk of the UBC Thunderbirds, and the Bisons women's hockey rookies will all make an appearance this summer on the show, and we'll meet and learn about these incredible women. I'm excited to have both Delayne and Mikayla join us this summer, and the Bisons rookies are always a fun group with whom to chat.

There will be a couple of shows that we'll do live on-location as there are some big hockey things happening in and around the city this summer. There's a better-than-good possibility we'll feature more guests with The Hockey Show's attendance and presence at these events, and I'm sure we'll make a few new friends who won't mind being featured on the show!

Of course, there's always room for more fun as we will celebrate Show #300 in a few weeks, Beans may need some time off for a special moment, and we may squeeze in a few more big-name guests to join everyone above. If the articles on HBIC have seemed a little less-than-stellar lately, it's because I'm spending a lot of time getting things set for this summer. And I couldn't be more excited for not taking a summer off with all of these amazing people who will appear on the show!

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
