The Hockey Show - Episode 296

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced radio show that strictly talks hockey, has a big show with some extremely important guests have done some hockey-related things! As vague as that is, we're going to close out Round Two of the Survivor: NHL Playoffs contest, sponsored by Lays and their Show Your Emotions contest, by eliminating Jeff and the San Jose Sharks before hitting the breaks on any additional exit interviews this week. Why, you ask? We get to welcome three amazing individuals who will allow Beans and I to talk about all sorts of achievements and accolades they've managed to acquire in their hockey careers!

Before we get to that, let's update the Survivor: NHL Playoffs contest after last night's Game Seven between the Washington Capitals and Tampa Bay Lightning.
Our two long-distance out-of-town entrants are the final two Survivors standing on NHL Playoffs Island as John, carried by Marc-Andre Fleury and the Vegas Golden Knights, will square off against Teri, powered by Holtby and Burakovksy in Game Seven's win over Tampa Bay. Only one can survive, and the Stanley Cup Final starts on Monday, May 28! With their eliminations, we'll have Billy and the Jets do an interview next week along with Dan and the Lightning to close out Round Three!

Tonight, however, we have more pressing matters as the three women seen to the left will be in-studio - Twizzlers for all! - to talk some hockey! The Hockey Show is proud, humbled, privileged, and honoured to welcome three members of the Balmoral Hall Blazers to the studio in Regan Boulton, Katie Bassett, and Kennesha Miswaggon! Katie and Kennesha play for the Blazers while Regan, an alumna of the program, works for the Blazers as the Admissions Officer and Hockey Recruiter for the school. These three won a bronze medal with the Blazers at this year's Female World Sport Challenge in early February before Bassett and Miswaggon went on to represent Manitoba at the National Aboriginal Hockey Championship where they captured Manitoba's second consecutive gold medal at the event! We'll talk to them about school life and traveling in a prep hockey program, winning medals, being generally awesome, and everything else before we quiz them on how much they actually know about Regan Boulton because her hockey career is one that may amaze you. Tune in tonight when these three amazing women join Beans and I on The Hockey Show at 5:30pm!
