The Hockey Show - Episode 145

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, returns tonight with some history! Rarely do we ever get to be the first in anything thanks to our obscurity in working for a campus radio station, but we stand in line to speak with some interesting people whenever we can. Tonight, though, we are the first radio station in Canada to have an exclusive with an athlete who made history just two weeks ago!

Pictured to the left is New York Riveters GM Dani Rylan and the first woman to sign a contract in the NWHL in Janine Weber! Janine, as you may remember, scored the overtime goal in the Clarkson Cup Final for the Boston Blades with the CWHL last year, and she's taken the leap of faith to join the NWHL as their very first signing! The former Providence Friar signed a one-year deal with New York, and we'll speak with her about her college career, her rookie year in the CWHL, signing with the NWHL and what it means to her, and her time playing at the World Championships in Rouen, France this year where Austria finished in second-place! We have a lot to discuss, and we're proud, honoured, and feel privileged to have Janine Weber join us on the show tonight!

With Janine calling in from her home, we're shutting the phones down tonight. It doesn't mean our interaction has to stop, though! 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. Join us tonight as we speak to the woman who made history by being the first player in the newest professional women's hockey league in Austria's Janine Weber!
