The Hockey Show - Episode 378

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced radio show that strictly talks hockey, returns to the airwaves on our friendly frequency of 101.5 FM for a little puck chatter tonight. It won't be your normal chatter about the game itself, though, as I'm proud to welcome a guest who will take us inside the game at the U SPORTS level! If you've ever wondered what it takes to put a team on the ice when it comes to skates, equipment, and uniforms, tonight is your night for some in-depth talk about that as I welcome Mat Relf, equipment manager for the Manitoba Bisons women's hockey team, to the show!

That's Mat in the image to the left as a member of the Springfield Collegiate Sabres who played in the Winnipeg High School Hockey League, and we'll chat with Mat about growing up, playing hockey at the high school level, and his career on skates before jumping into his new role with the Manitoba Bisons. We'll find out how Mat got started on the equipment side of the coin, what some of his responsibilities are, what a normal gameday looks like for him, some of the special requests that he has to complete when it comes to players' equipment, and whether he gets any input into coaching decisions when he's behind the bench! It should be a fun show as we learn all about Mat and his routines as an equipment manager tonight on The Hockey Show at 5:30pm CT!

Where's the best place can you hear us if you're outside Winnipeg or not near a radio, 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.

If you have questions, you can email all show queries and comments to! 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 Mathew Relf to discuss playing hockey, getting players ready to play hockey, skate sharpening, team responsibilities, tightening loose screws and fixing broken toe straps, and much more exclusively on 101.5 UMFM and on the web stream!
