The Hockey Show - Episode 206

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is back on the air tonight as UMFM shifts to a sports station for at least one night! Your trusty and beloved show all about hockey will lead into the first Bisons Sports football broadcast tonight on 101.5 UMFM, so stay tuned after the show for all the action as the Manitoba Bisons welcome the Calgary Dinos to Investors Group Field for the first big game of the season!

Tonight on the show, Teebz, Beans, and TJ will discuss the guy to the left and the RCMP's ongoing investigation in Russell, Manitoba over some cases of beer being "saved" by the man in question. We'll also tear into proposed team names for the Las Vegas NHL franchise and the Laval AHL franchise, the uniforms unveiled by both the NHL's Philadelphia Flyers and the WHL's Calgary Hitmen, the new leadership group for the Jets and whether the three men named were the right call, TSN's launch 32 years ago to the day and how that has changed the spectrum of sports in Canada, an update on the Bisons women's hockey team's European vacation, Scott Gomez's retirement, and former Bisons Sports employee Danielle Doiron making history in baseball! In other words, it's a busy show tonight!

The phone lines are wide open tonight for your calls, so get your takes in at (204) 269-UMFM (269-8636)! Make sure your radio in the Winnipeg region is set to 101.5 on your FM dial if you can't make it or listen live between 5:30pm and 6:30pm CT on your web-enabled device at the UMFM webpage!

As new feature for your listening pleasure, if you're an Android user, download the UMFM app for easy listening! The iPhone version is coming soon, so make sure you check back here for its availability. Once it is, we'll post that link here as well!

Email all show questions and comments to! 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.

Tonight, we talk crime, uniforms, captains, TV, radio, and the Bisons as we lead into the Bisons football broadcast on The Hockey Show only on 101.5 UMFM!
