The Hockey Show - Episode 444

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced radio show that strictly talks hockey, is back tonight with another amazing guest who is doing incredible things in a Manitoba community after establishing her own stellar career on the ice! I just noticed that today's episode is #444 as well, so that's a big of a milestone for the old program here! We'll dust it off for another week as Jenna and I meet an phenomenal woman today who is making a difference in so many lives!

Tonight, Teebz and Jenna sit down with Miss Christine Bumstead, head coach of the Pembina Valley Hawks U15 AAA Bantam Girls Team, and we discover everything that Christine is doing! Christine was a great player with the St. Mary's Academy Flames during her days on the ice, but she decided to pursue her education on a number of fronts rather than playing U SPORTS hockey and it seems that her choice has been a good one! We'll talk to her about being a pioneer with the St. Mary's prep team, choosing school over hockey, learning ASL and the paths that have opened because of that choice, getting a shot at coaching the Assiniboine Park Rangers Bantam Girls team (and last week's guest Kyleigh Johnson!), moving to Morden to teach middle school and becoming a coaching icon in the Pembina Valley, becoming a certified Zumba instructor, being part of the NHL Coaches Association's Development Program and a ton more! We needed another hour to dive deeper in to Christine's work, but what she gives us in the hour tonight is simply awesome! Make sure you tune in on one of 101.5 FM, Channel 718 on MTS TV, or via at 5:30pm CT to hear all about Christine Bumstead and get to know one of the rising stars in this province!

We'd also be remiss if we didn't remind everyone about the upcoming vote for the 2021 Kraft Hockeyville experience! Make sure you go and vote on April 9 from 8am until April 10 at 8am at the Kraft Hockeyville website for Saint Adolphe, Manitoba! We could see an NHL preseason game out there in the fall if they win, so get your votes in, folks!

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 or Google Play 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 meet Christine Bumstead as we learn about establishing the Flames, opting for books over pucks, coaching and changing hockey for the better, being a role model, keeping the deaf and hard-of-hearing community close, keeping people fit, and much more exclusively on 101.5 UMFM and on the web stream!
