The Hockey Show - Episode 449

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced radio show that strictly talks hockey, bends that rule a little as Jason Pchajek steps in for Jenna as she takes a personal day today. Jenna will be back next week, so Teebz and Jason die into the hockey stories this week from all over the globe as there has been a bunch of news from the past week that needs discussion. It's always good to get Jason's thoughts on the game, and he and Teebz bend the rules with a short discussion about F1 on this show as well!

Teebz and Jason dive into the NHL news as Turner Sports will officially take over from NBC next year, and the two gents go over all the possibilities that the NHL may be assessing in this new broadcasting deal that includes streaming and some chatter about F1 Racing. After we get back on track, they chat about more AJHL shutdowns due to COVID-19, whether it was better to cancel the IIHF Women's World Championship before the event starts or after it began as Nova Scotia goes into a hard lockdown, the craziness of the QMJHL allowing fans to watch games, Avangard Omsk winning the Gagarin Cup in what might be the weirdest year for any team, Brandin Cote being selected as the heir apparent to succeed Mike Babcock at the University of Saskatchewan, why Mike Babcock hasn't been trumpeting the Huskies program, Gerard Gallant getting the call for Canada with our own selfish wants, Florence Schelling being relieved of duties at Bern, a couple of veteran players leaving the University of Regina women's program, the NWHL doubling the salary cap without turning a profit in six season, and we finish off with some EBUG laughter! It's a busy show as we dig into these stories, so make sure you tune in on one of 101.5 FM, Channel 718 on MTS TV, or via at 5:30pm CT!

I didn't mention it on the show, but we're still looking to help St. Adolphe so they can bring hockey back in October. The St. Adolphe Community Club has started a crowdfunding effort on Amilia to help raise some money. The cool part is that if you donate $50 or more, not only are you helping St. Adolphe reach their goal so they can make repairs, upgrades, and improvements, but you'll also receive a tax receipt as well! Make sure you check out their website, their Facebook page, and follow both the St. Adolphe Twitter account and Instagram account for all the lastest news on their fundraising efforts and the repairs to the rink!

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 Jason break down new TV deals, more COVID craziness, new KHL champions, a new coach in Saskatchewan, and much more exclusively on 101.5 UMFM and on the web stream!
