The Hockey Show - Episode 175

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, makes it way back onto the airwaves tonight with a whole pile of guests in-studio and on the phone! Rarely do Beans and I get to throw parties on the air, so we'll break out the hors d'oeuvres and welcome three ladies to the show. Two will sit in as unofficial co-hosts while the third is our interviewee for the evening. It should be a great discussion tonight with one of the CIS' best players in recent history and two current CIS players. The key in all of this? All three have ties to the Manitoba Bisons in some way!

Beans and I are honoured, proud, privileged, and humbled to be able to speak with one of the CWHL's finest players, a 2016 CWHL All-Star, and a member of the Brampton Thunder in forward Candice Styles! Candice is coming off the recent CWHL All-Star Weekend, so we'll talk to her about that, her start in hockey, her international and national play both with Hockey Canada and the CIS, and how she ended up at Wilfred Laurier University where she developed into one of the best defencemen this country has to offer that has come through the CIS system. After doing a little research, it's clear that Candice has a few ties to the Manitoba Bisons and we'll point these out in the interview tonight. We also have a few Twitter questions to ask and we'll gladly take more, so hit up the Twitter machine if you want to ask Candice a question!

Also joining us in-studio tonight are two of the current Manitoba Bisons who play for the women's team at the institution. Goaltender Rachel Dyck and forward Charity Price. The Bisons are currently in a battle for playoff positioning, and they have a huge weekend set coming up against the Saskatchewan Huskies at Wayne Fleming Arena on the University of Manitoba campus. We'll talk to them about dropping a pair of games to Lethbridge last weekend, how they are righting the ship for the Huskies this weekend, and their recent social that helped to raise money for their European hockey tour next August!

It's a busy night on the ol' show so the phones will be closed as we have Candice tying up a line for her interview! Make sure you tune your radio dial in the Winnipeg region to 101.5 on your FM dial or listen live between 5:30pm and 6:30pm CT on your web-enabled device at the UMFM webpage as well! Tweet me anytime with questions you may have 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. A CWHL All-Star and two local CIS stars join us on The Hockey Show tonight only on 101.5 UMFM!
