The Hockey Show - Episode 278

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced radio show that strictly talks hockey, is back tonight with a special guest! We normally like to have guests booked early on our show, but this one required a little scheduling before we could confirm her attendance. She has been recognized on ESPN as the Greatest Hockey Player in the World This Week, and she overcame some incredible odds to do some incredible things! We'll feature this young dynamo on the show tonight as Beans and I go over a pile of happenings in the hockey world from this past week. There's also a major anniversary today in the NHL. so we'll talk to our guest, talk some news, and highlight this anniversary tonight on The Hockey Show on 101.5 UMFM!

That young sniper is Riley Scorgie. You may have heard of her thanks to her story in the Edmonton Journal or maybe because I nominated her to be the Best Player in the World of the Week for this week. You may recognize her last name as we had her father, Adam Scorgie, on with us to speak about his film, Ice Guardians, back in March. Well, it turns out that Riley has an incredible story to tell after she scored her 50th goal in just her 19th game of the season during the first game of Quikcard Edmonton Minor Hockey Week! Why is that important? Because Scorgie was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre syndrome last October, a syndrome that affects the hands, arms, legs, and feet after the immune system attacks the body's nerves in those areas. This is the same issue that is currently affecting Anaheim's Patrick Eaves and keeping him out of hockey. Riley overcame the disease and has become one of the best scorers that Edmonton has seen since the lofty days of Wayne Gretzky! We'll talk to Riley and her mother, Lauren, tonight about winning the fight against a disease that threatened her hockey career as well as getting to know Riley! Depending on time, Beans and I will discuss some other news, but we're focused on a special girl tonight as The Hockey Show welcome Riley Scorgie to the program!
