The Hockey Show - Episode 141

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is back with a huge show tonight as we're proud, honoured, and privileged to welcome back two guests who appeared way back in Season One of The Hockey Show! Since that time, he's played in Russia and has established a new career in Denmark while she has continued her excellent freelancing work from all sorts of places across Europe as the pair traveled and found new locales! To say we've been excited for this show would be an understatement!

We've tried to keep our listeners up-to-date on what's happening with Brandon and Jessica through the last couple of years with our Russian Roundup pieces, but we'll get to hear from the two travelers today as they fill us in on the last couple of years of hockey, travel, moving, and life in foreign countries. If you've listened over the last couple of years, Brandon was playing in the KHL for CSKA Moscow last year before an injury made him reconsider his options. In his decision, he found a job coaching Vojens in Denmark, and things have gone pretty well for him! Jessica Scott-Reid has been writing up a storm for various publications including the National Post, VICE,, the Montreal Gazette, the Winnipeg Free Press, and! Needless to say, being a writer has allowed her to travel with Brandon while maintaining her position as a freelancer, and, from the amount of work she's doing, she's doing extremely well too!

Tonight on the The Hockey Show, we are proud to have the Reids back in the studio with us as we talk to them about life in Moscow and playing in the KHL, life in Vojens, becoming a coach and some of the transitions Brandon was forced to make going from player to coach, the return of the Manitoba Moose and whether or not Brandon and/or Jessica has approached them for a position, and we'll have a chat about the TV series Hockey Wives as both Brandon and Jessica are fans of the show! We may have to petition the W Network to follow Jessica next season as the first European hockey wife when she and Brandon return to Denmark!

We're super-excited to have the Reids back on the show tonight as we have lots of questions for them about how life is going for them. Join us tonight 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. The Manitoba Moose's seventh-overall scorer all-time and one of my favorite writers will be on the The Hockey Show tonight!
