The Hockey Show - Episode 190

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is back tonight with another fantastic guest as we get to know the residents of Letterkenny a little more! As you may be aware, Jared Keeso and Nathan Dales, the two men who were the original Letterkenny guys, have appeared on the show, and we'll have them back once filming wraps on Season 2 of the show! Tonight, however, we meet another one of the key residents, and this Canadian actor has been working in TVs and movies for most of his adult life!

While his name may sound identical to a high-scoring Tampa Bay Lightning forward, Tyler Johnston has been acting non-stop since 2004! Johnston has appeared in TV shows such as The L Word, Supernatural, and Less Than Kind from where he may be best known, but he's also had some fantastic hockey roles as he appeared as the young Don Cherry in Wrath of Grapes, the second Don Cherry movie, and as Alex Gorrall in Slap Shot 3: The Junior League. Tyler is currently working alongside both Keeso and Dales in Letterkenny as Stewart, one of the "skids" or goth residents of the fictitious town. We'll talk to Tyler about his career in front of the camera, his time on Letterkenny, and what may be next for one of Canada's brightest young stars.

Tyler, having been born in New Westminster, British Columbia, is also a hockey fan, so we'll chat with him about the Canucks, the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, and we'll get his picks from the final five teams for the Stanley Cup Final. We'll also find out if he played hockey as a youngster, what it was like playing one of Canada's hockey icons in Don Cherry, and if he dominates the Letterkenny staff games!

The phones are closed tonight with Tyler calling in from BC! To hear all of Tyler's chatter, 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! 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. We talk to Canadian actor and Letterkenny resident Tyler Johnston tonight on The Hockey Show only on 101.5 UMFM!
