The Hockey Show - Episode 375

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced radio show that strictly talks hockey, is on the road tonight as I get a chance to dig into a really great story about the growth of women's hockey in the city of Winnipeg and, hopefully, across our great province. If you weren't aware of the Winnipeg Women's High School Hockey League before today, you'll be a little more in tune with the league following tonight's show as I venture out to Transcona Collegiate Institute to visit with the Titans women's hockey team who are the newest team in the league after starting play this year! In the last few years, the WWHSHL has grown by four teams with the Titans being the newest of the four, and we've seen amazing growth from the original four teams in 1996 to 26 teams today!

The Titans women's team was founded this season and joined the WWHSHL to go along with the Murdoch MacKay Clansmen who joined in 2018-19, the Coll├Ęge Pierre-Elliott-Trudeau Canadiennes who jump into the league in 2017-18, and the Kildonan East Reivers who made their debut in 2016-17. These four expansion teams were placed in the Hire Marketing division this season as they look to improve and make the leap up to the higher divisions where some of the more established teams play. The Titans are currently 5-4-0-0 and sit in fifth-place in the nine-team division, so they're holding their own fairly well in their inaugural campaign! I'll talk to players, coaches, and staff tonight and get their thoughts on how the season is going, the growth of the game at the high school level and other levels in Winnipeg and Manitoba, some of the rivals as they work their way through Season One, and more as we meet the Titans at 5:30pm CT on 101.5 UMFM and umfm.com!

Where's the best place can you hear us if you're outside Winnipeg, you ask? 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 hockeyshow@umfm.com! Tweet me anytime with questions you may have by hitting me up at @TeebzHBIC on Twitter! I'm here to listen to you, so make your voice heard!

Tonight, Teebz sits down with players, coaches, and staff from the Transcona Collegiate Titans women's hockey team to talk firsts, inaugural seasons, playing at the high school level, success in the WWHSHL, the growth of the sport, and much more only on The Hockey Show found exclusively on 101.5 UMFM, on the UMFM app, on the UMFM.com web stream!
