The Hockey Show - Episode 355

It's another Thursday which means The Hockey Show is back on the airwaves of UMFM tonight! We rarely are able to feature gold medallists on our show simply due to the fact that they usually live elsewhere than our humble community. Tonight, though, Beans and I are lucky to welcome a recent gold medallist who has been breaking barriers and making waves both on and off the ice in the hockey world with her outstanding play at the prep ice hockey level, the national ball hockey level, and the international ball hockey level! Her ice hockey exploits won't go unmentioned tonight, though, as she's been pretty stellar on the ice and will continue to excel next year at a post-secondary institution! We're excited to welcome this guest to the show, so let's get to it!

Tonight, Beans and I welcome the woman seen in the photo standing on the right holding the ISBHF World Championship Trophy! We are humbled, privileged, honoured, and proud to welcome this proud Manitoban goaltender who backstopped Team Canada to the gold medal in Julianna Thomson! Julianna is an outstanding ice hockey goaltender who has played for the St. Mary's Academy prep team and Team Manitoba over the last few years, earning her a scholarship to the OUA's York University Lions next season and beyond! Off the ice, she's starred for Team Manitoba ball hockey for a number of years, and she was recruited to play with Team Canada as one of their two goalies this year at the ISBHF World Championship in Slovakia where she and her teammates won the gold medal! We'll talk to Julianna about her career, playing on ice versus playing on the floor, her trip to Slovakia, her participation in the Female World Sports School Challenge, and much more tonight on The Hockey Show! Join us at 5:30pm CT on 101.5 UMFM!

Speaking of joining us, the new UMFM website's online streaming player is pretty awesome if you want to listen online. If you're using an Apple device, the player doesn't seem to like Safari yet, but we highly recommend you use the TuneIn app found on the App Store or perhaps another browser. If you do use the TuneIn app, you won't be disappointed. It's a solid app.

Having lost faith in Facebook, I spend far less time on that site for good reasons. In saying that, you can still 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 dive into Julianna Thomson's career through minor hockey, prep hockey, ball hockey, OUA hockey, international hockey, and much more only on The Hockey Show found exclusively on 101.5 UMFM, on the UMFM app, on the web stream!
