The Hockey Show - Episode 346

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced radio show that strictly talks hockey, hits the air tonight with a very special guest as we get inside the mind of one of Manitoba's best officials! Beans is off tonight as he tends to a house of sick kids, so Jason Pchajek and I will welcome this young woman who gets yelled at more than she should, disagreed with more often than not, and glared at for reasons for which she shouldn't be. It should be a fun show as we break down the walls on officiating and get the insight from a woman whose name will likely be heard at bigger tournaments and games in the future!

Tonight, The Hockey Show is proud, honoured, privileged, and humbled to introduce you to Miss Amy Martin, one of Hockey Manitoba's best and brightest officials! We'll talk to Amy tonight about her officiating career, how she got started, some of the abuse she deals with, and a number of her accomplishments as we dig into her life in stripes! For those that don't know, the "brightest" portion of that comment above will also be highlighted as Amy is a rather gifted student who graduated from the Engineering department at the University of Manitoba, and her work in the classroom growing up makes her an amazing role model for young women interested in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) career! Tonight, we meet Miss Amy Martin on The Hockey Show at 5:30pm CT!

For those asking, the Survivor: NHL Playoffs contest officially had four more people voted off the island, and we'll tackle those exit interviews next week on the show. It will give some proper reflection time for Teri (NYI), Derek (CBJ), Travis (DAL), and Jared (COL) to come up with solid exit interviews for their teams, so tune in for those next week as the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs continue! As a side note, Teri's elimination means we'll have a new champion this year as she entered this year's contest as the defending champion, so one of John (CAR), Dianna (BOS), Darin (STL), or Richard (SJS) will take home the grand prize of the Chicago Blackhawks jersey this year!

Speaking of joining us on the show, the new UMFM website's online streaming player is pretty awesome if you want to listen online. If you're using an Apple device, the player doesn't seem to like Safari yet, but we highly recommend you use the TuneIn app found on the App Store or perhaps another browser. If you do use the TuneIn app, you won't be disappointed. It's a solid app.

Having lost faith in Facebook, I spend far less time on that site for good reasons. In saying that, you can still email all show questions and comments to! Tweet me anytime with questions you may have by hitting me up at @TeebzHBIC on Twitter! We're here to listen to you, so make your voice heard!

Tonight, Teebz and Jason chat with Amy Martin on life as an official, getting yelled way too often, tolerating players, coaches and fans, why she's so good at what she does, and much more only on The Hockey Show found exclusively on 101.5 UMFM, on the UMFM app, on the web stream!
