The Hockey Show - Episode 116

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is beyond excited for tonight's show. We're had some pretty big guests on the show in the past as we're featured current and former players from all different leagues. Recently, we welcomed Brad Lukowich as the first Stanley Cup winner to our show, and he gave an incredible interview. Tonight, we are humbled, honoured, and privileged to welcome our second Stanley Cup winner as we take some time to speak with former NHL great Theoren Fleury!

It will be a short interview with Mr. Fleury, unfortunately, as he's in Moose Jaw for a book signing as he's currently doing a book tour for his new book, Conversations With a Rattlesnake. He scheduled to be at the signing at 5pm, so we'll be pre-recording the interview with Mr. Fleury before he gets into the signing event. In saying that, we'll open up the phone lines after the interview for your comments as we talk about Mr. Fleury, his books, his experiences both good and bad, and how we viewed him as a player.

I also want to point out that he'll be in Winnipeg this Sunday, November 30 for a book signing at the Grant Park McNally Robinson location at 3pm, so get out to see Mr. Fleury when he comes to town! I'm going to be down there to speak with Mr. Fleury and get a scribble on a book or two as well!

We'll also talk about the losses this week of Pat Quinn and Viktor Tikhonov and the impacts they had on the game of hockey, Martin Brodeur getting a shot with the St. Louis Blues, the Winnipeg Jets dropping two and then winning two, the Bisons and their recent games against the UBC Thunderbirds and the upcoming games against the University of Alberta, and, if time allows, even more hockey stories!

We'll be live on the air at 5:30pm and the phones will be open after the interview with Theoren Fleury! Hit us up on 101.5 UMFM on your radio dial in the Winnipeg region or you can listen live between 5:30pm and 6:30pm CT on your web-enabled device at the UMFM webpage! Give us a call at 204-269-8636 (269-UMFM) so you can weigh in on the discussion as well! You can tweet us anytime you like by hitting us up at @TeebzHBIC on Twitter. You can also post some stuff to Facebook if you use the "Like" feature, and I always have crazy stuff posted there that doesn't make it to the blog or show. There are lots of ways for you to interact on The Hockey Show, and we want to hear from you!
