The Hockey Show - Episode 531

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced radio show that strictly talks hockey, hits the ground running tonight as we have a few big stories to work through and one deals entirely with the culture within hockey once more. If you believe our hosts have been spending a lot of time on the culture of hockey in the last few months, there's a purpose to it as they both want the game to be better. That starts with looking inward, and that's why they continue to focus on topics such as Hockey Canada's misuse of funds and their cover-ups of sexual assaults. Tonight, thought, they tackle another difficult subject that needs to be brought into the spotlight.

Teebz and Jason need to discuss the recent racism story from the NCAA involving Jagger Joshua because racism in hockey simply isn't going away. If you missed what happened, a player from Ohio State used a racial slur towards Joshua in a game, was tossed from said game, and the Big Ten Conference did nothing. Our hosts will discuss this and a few other incidents from this calendar year as they dig into hockey's culture once more. Beyond that, they'll discuss Cale Makar setting a new NHL record and what it could mean for his long-term development, the Seattle Kraken using a loophole to send Shane Wright to the AHL rather than the OHL for development, Eric Belanger's odd coaching decision, the TMU Bold hosting the 2024 U SPORTS Men's Hockey Championship, Concordia's women's athletics teams get a big boost, and we'll break from tradition and talk a little World Cup too! We'll attempt to squeeze all of this chatter into the hour tonight on The Hockey Show at 5:30pm CT so join us on one of 101.5 FM, Channel 718 on MTS TV, or via UMFM.com!

If you live outside Winnipeg and want to listen, we have options! 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 hockeyshow@umfm.com! 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 talk racism, superstar development, coaching decisions, hosting decisions, money, footy, and much more exclusively on 101.5 UMFM and on the UMFM.com web stream!

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
