The Hockey Show - Episode 462

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced radio show that strictly talks hockey, is back tonight as Teebz and Jenna avoid all the NHL free agency and trade talk to focus on other stories. Honestly, other sports site run by mainstream media conglomerates have more than enough coverage on that, so The Hockey Show knows its place and will focus on other stories that need to be discussed. We don't shy away from the harder topics tonight either, so settle in for some real discussion about the sport and its culture.

Tonight, Teebz and Jenna discuss Alberta's new pandemic measures that could potentially threaten all the good Canada has done over the last few months. They have a real talk about the mental health of athletes, specifically hockey players, in Canada with the expectations we dump on them following Simone Biles' withdrawal from the gymnastics competition in Tokyo. They dissect the abhorrent act by the Montreal Canadians in drafting a convicted sex offender. And they close out the show with some fun topics as Teebz and Jenna look at the US Olympic coaches, the new Chinese women's national team coach for the Olympics, a new ECHL team gets their first coach, updates from Calgary on their new arena, news from Steinbach about a new facility, some U SPORTS news, and an exciting opportunity for U18 girls in Winnipeg! The show is filled to its limits with hockey news, so make sure you tune in at 5:30pm CT on 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 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 talk stupid decisions, the weight of expectations, criminal decisions, new coaches, new arenas, players finding new homes and teams, and much more exclusively on 101.5 UMFM and on the web stream!
