The Hockey Show - Episode 322

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced radio show that strictly talks hockey, is back tonight with a special show as it's US Thanksgiving! Ok, that's not why it's special, but it makes it hard to squeeze in a word when everyone is eating, talking about football, and everything else happening. Instead, I went and did a little setup work in getting an American guest on the show tonight, and she has an incredible story to tell. I am thankful she has let me into her world as I find her to be a remarkable woman with everything she's involved in, and that's why I feel privileged to introduce you to her tonight!

The woman in the middle of the picture is Kelsey Neumann, and I am honoured to bring her story to the air tonight! Kelsey has been all over the North American map playing hockey, starting in Texas and taking her to North Carolina with all sorts of stops in between those locations! We'll hear about her growing up in a non-traditional hockey market, how she became a goaltender, some of the places she's played, her NCAA career, her professional career, and her work off the ice with a ton of people whose lives had been made better because of her! We'll also hear about a time in her life when she nearly quit hockey, and this is a story she's never spoken about before so you'll be hearing an exclusive on The Hockey Show tonight! Kelsey's also an ambassador for mental health initiatives, and I'll post some resources for those who may be seeking some help after the show airs! All of this happens tonight with Kelsey Neumann on The Hockey Show at 5:30pm CT!

You might be wondering where the blurb about the UMFM app has gone. I'm going on record to say you can still use it, but the new UMFM website will fill the needs of our listeners because the new online streaming player is pretty awesome. If you're using an Apple device, the player doesn't seem to like Safari, but we highly recommend you use the TuneIn app found on the App Store. The UMFM app will currently work for you, but there's some work being done to realign it with UMFM's new website, so it may go silent soon. If it does, TuneIn. It's a solid app.

I'm changing up the social media portion as well. I'm losing faith in Facebook, so that option will slowly be allowed to drift off into the horizon. However, the other options still work! Email all show questions and comments to! Tweet me anytime with questions you may have by hitting me up at @TeebzHBIC on Twitter! We're here to listen to you, so make your voice heard!

Tonight, Teebz goes one-on-one with goaltender Kelsey Neumann and we learn about her life, her career, her job away from hockey, and much more only on The Hockey Show found exclusively on 101.5 UMFM, on the UMFM app, on the web stream!
