The Hockey Show - Episode 154

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, returns tonight with a somewhat-busy show. There are a ton of hockey stories out there right now, but we're going to focus on the good ones tonight. By good, I mean happy. Pleasant. Uplifting. The kinds of stories where you'll be inclined to ask your friends if they've heard this one. Yes, there are a pile of stories in and around hockey right now that have all sorts of negativity in them, and we've talked about those on previous shows. Hit the Podcast page under the Radio drop-down menu above to find those shows. Tonight, we go in a different direction as we look at some fun stuff!

Because we're a campus radio station, we take pride in our student-athletes being students first. When the CIS begins handing out awards for academic achievement, the Manitoba Bisons usually have a few names on there. When I say a few, I mean 102. WOW! We'll go over the criteria to obtain the CIS Academic All-Canadian status for 2014-15 and look at which Bisons, specifically the hockey-playing ones, achieved their All-Canadian status. From there, we'll weigh in on our puffy shirt statuses for two new looks in hockey, discuss the Mark Giordano signing and how that may affect Dustin Byfuglien's status in Winnipeg, Andrew Ladd being back in Winnipeg and how he's ignored our requests for an interview, and we'll look at the AHL schedule in all its glory with the AHL finally releasing the full schedule this afternoon.

The phones will go live at 5:30pm CT, so give us a call at 204-269-8636 (269-UMFM)! Make sure you tune in 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. We're going to move at a quick pace, so get your calls in if you want to chat hockey on The Hockey Show only on 101.5 UMFM!
