The Hockey Show - Episode 437

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced radio show that strictly talks hockey, is back tonight and is slightly conflicted as Jenna and I discussed just calling the show "The COVID-19 In Hockey Show" with all the news this past week and a bit about the coronavirus pandemic invading all levels of hockey in the United States. While we joked about changing the show's name, it's not a laughing matter with respect to the number of leagues affected by outbreaks and shutdowns. We'll look at all that tonight on the show where we avoid any possible transmissions of the virus!

The big story is how hockey went and done messed up, but Teebz and Jenna hunker down and discuss the hypocrisy of Paul Maurice's rant against the media questioning Blake Wheeler's defensive efforts, Kevin Sawyer's complete dissociation for the game he's watching, the Paul Maurice spectacles stats, the Penguins' search to replace Jim Rutherford, and the Carolina Hurricanes investing a pile of money in women's hockey. From there, the duo runs through all the COVID outbreaks seen in the NHL, AHL, and the IIHF over the last week before taking task with the lack of transparency and rather inept management in the NWHL that led to their two-week bubble blowing up and suspending their mini-season. They close the show with some good news from the PWHPA and some Olympics talk on this episode. It's a busy show with another rant as Teebz and Jenna dive into these stories at 5:30pm CT, so make sure you tune in on one of 101.5 FM, Channel 718 on MTS TV, or via!

Where's the best place can you hear tonight's show 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, so if you want to stream the show I'd recommend Radio Garden to do that as it works nicely with Safari. If you're more of an app person, we recommend you use the TuneIn app found on the App Store. 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 and Jenna talk about Paul Maurice talking out both sides of his face, Kevin Sawyer talking jibberish, COVID here, COVID there, COVID everywhere as the NWHL cancels their season, the PWHPA hitting the big rink, and much more exclusively on 101.5 UMFM and on the web stream!
