The Hockey Show - Episode 208

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is back with a major milestone and some fun tonight. Can you believe we're finishing off Year Four of the The Hockey Show? Yeah, we didn't think we'd get here either, but we made it and we're still going strong! Beans and I have been lucky to have had so much fun on the radio while bringing you interesting interviews, great debates, and a pile of news stories, and we'll be kicking off Year Five next week with some giveaways and fun! Tonight, however, we have some introductions to do!

The University of Manitoba Bisons women's hockey team finishes off their only week of preseason games in Manitoba this weekend as they play Friday and Saturday against the Winnipeg Avros of the Manitoba Female Midget Hockey League! To get you ready, we're bringing on all five new Bisons players to introduce you to the future of the Herd! We'll welcome Jordyn Zacharias, Sheridan Oswald, Mekaela Fisher, Jenai Buchanan, and Megan Neduzak to the show and we'll give you some background on each before we discuss the upcoming Canada West season and where the Bisons rookies feel the team will finish! We'll also discuss their recent European barnstorming tour where they went 4-0, and get the skinny on some of the highlights of the trip! We'll also be reminding everyone of the games this weekend, so get your seats down to a seat at Wayne Fleming Arena to see the 6-0 Bisons play the Avros this weekend!

It's going to be a packed house with seven people on the microphones tonight even with Beans taking the night off, so make sure you tune in because TJ and I will getting into these players' stories almost immediately! The phone lines will be wide open tonight for your calls if you have questions for the new Bisons, so call us at (204) 269-UMFM (269-8636)!
