The Hockey Show - Episode 126

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, returns tonight in the wake of the "Evander Exodus" as we get our alliteration on. As much as this will be on the minds of everyone tonight, you're probably at the point where you're thinking you've heard enough. We appreciate that, and we certainly know that you tune into The Hockey Show for our unique look at hockey. In saying that, we're not focusing on the trade. Instead, we're bringing you something different!

Nicole Haase, our favorite NCAA and women's hockey writer, joins us on the program, and we're going to talk about a number of topics. We'll chat about the current rankings in the NCAA for both the men's and women's programs. We'll talk about Harvard upsetting Boston College in the Beanpot Championship and what that means for the rankings. We'll talk about Shannon Miller's dismissal at UMD and whether her allegations of sexual discrimination hold water. We'll talk about Nicole's interview with Shannon Szabados and Shannon's revealing of a number of interesting topics. And we'll ask her how far the Wisconsin Badgers are going to go in this year's Frozen Four tournament!

Ok, and we'll even discuss the Evander Kane trade and how it affects the Jets and Sabres. It will be a small mention at the end of the program, though, so be prepared for a lot of NCAA chatter before it. To be honest, the stories and information that Nicole is bringing to the show tonight aren't reported in Canada, so this is a show you should certainly hear.

The phones will be closed tonight as we speak with Nicole, but the show will be live 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! You can tweet me anytime you like by hitting me 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. We're excited to talk some cawlidge hockey tonight!
