The Hockey Show - Episode 329

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced radio show that strictly talks hockey, finds its way back on the radio airwaves and over the internet tonight as Beans and I settler for the 329th week of doing this. In seeing that number, it dawned on me that we've been doing this weekly thing for a long time now and we needed to step up our guest roster for 2019. No, we didn't get a pro hockey player for tonight's show despite the efforts we put forth in trying to get one, but we got the next best thing. It's always an honour when we bring in someone smarter than us to talk hockey - literally, every guest we've ever had - and tonight's guest is not only smarter than us, but he's also doing something awesome for the community!

This guy to the left? He might be one of the most talented writers covering the Winnipeg Jets today. That's Murat Ates of The Athletic who covers a lot of the Winnipeg hockey scene, and Beans and I are proud, humbled, privileged, and honoured to welcome him to The Hockey Show this evening! Murat is doing an amazing thing on Saturday where he and a pack of volunteers will meet at the Good Will Social Club at 625 Portage Avenue from 2-5pm where they'll make Valentine's Day cards for women and children currently staying at shelters! This is one of the best ideas of altruism I've seen in a while, so we'll talk to Murat about the event on Saturday before getting into Patrik Laine's goal-scoring woes and why he seems to be struggling, Elliotte Friedman's comments about how Brandon Tanev might be the odd-man out come free agency this spring, the Jets having three games in-hand on the Predators with a January 17 showdown looming, Sergei Bobrovsky being suspended by the Blue Jackets, and Murat's thoughts on the NHL All-Star jerseys revealed yesterday made out of plastic fished out of the ocean! It should be a great show with one of the best journalists in the city in Murat Ates tonight at 5:30pm!

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 and Beans welcome Murat ates to the show as they discuss Valentine's Day cards for a good cause, the Jets, Bobrovsky, All-Star Game threads, and much more only on The Hockey Show found exclusively on 101.5 UMFM, on the UMFM app, on the web stream!
