The Hockey Show - Episode 128

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is back tonight with a pile of stuff to go over as this past week has been busy! We had CIS playoff action, a pile of NHL trades, a potential new logo dug up by a colleague, some injuries to discuss, and a couple of announcements regarding upcoming guests! In other words, we're going to move fast tonight, but the phones will be open for your calls!

The image to the left? Apparently, that's the one of two logos that is being trademarked by Barclays Center as per's twitter feed. HBIC contributor John from Capitol Islander District posted all the details on his site, but it's interesting to note the similarities between the NBA's Brooklyn Nets and this logo. Also, it should be noted there is no mention of "Islanders" despite the Islanders moving into Barclays Center next season. The one thing that really caught my attention is how the "B" looks very similar to the Bruins' "B". I'm not sure how far this will get or what the final intentions of these new logos are, but we'll chat a little about this tonight!

On top of that, we're going to talk about last weekend's playoff games between the Bisons women's team and the Regina Cougars and their upcoming weekend series against the UBC Thunderbirds and what they need to do to win. We'll talk about the newest Jet, Jiri Tlusty, and the trades made by Minnesota for Sean Bergenheim, Pittsburgh for Daniel Winnik, and Los Angeles for Andrej Sekera. We'll also toss in our opinions about the injuries to Tyler Seguin and Patrick Kane and how they affect their respective teams. And we have announcements about the next two shows as we're excited to welcome some incredible guests!

The phones will open tonight so give us a call at 204-269-8636 (UMFM) to be a part of the action! The show, as always, 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 have lots to go through tonight, so give us a call to have your take added to the mix!
