The Hockey Show - Episode 450

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced radio show that strictly talks hockey, is back tonight as Teebz and Jenna reconvene for a chat about the fastest game on ice. There has been some good news this week from a few places, but the obvious topic we have to cover is the Tom Wilson craziness that happened on Monday and Tuesday, and why the NHL's response to the incident was wrong. There's also some Canada West news about the upcoming schedule for the 2021-22 season, and you'll want to hear this because Canada West is making some adjustments to the hockey season this winter. It's a big show, so let's break this down!

Look at this clown. Teebz and Jenna have a discussion about Tom Wilson's antics on the ice on Monday and the fallout of the NHL's response to what happened in that game with examples of similar situations and why the Department of Player Safety missed an opportunity to draw a line in the sand as to what's acceptable behaviour from the players. Beyond that, the two hosts also send out congratulations to Peyton Krebs for his first NHL game and first NHL point, discuss Milan Lucic waiving his no-trade clause for the upcoming expansion draft, chat about Abbotsford officially becoming the new home for Vancouver's AHL franchise, send out some well-wishes to former Manitoba Moose defender Maxime Fortunas who announced his retirement this week, shout-out to Collin Shirley for his ECHL debut and his first professional goal, ridicule the QMJHL for their latest decision, talk about a potential August PWHPA stop coming up, and there's a solid examination of the Canada West hockey season. We cover a lot on tonight's show, so make sure you tune in on one of 101.5 FM, Channel 718 on MTS TV, or via at 5:30pm CT!

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 Jenna discuss bad decisions, missed opportunities, first games, first points, last games, new homes, forced moves, upcoming schedules, and much more exclusively on 101.5 UMFM and on the web stream!
