PLEASE NOTE: I've moved the podcasts to my Google Drive to help alleviate some server space issues at the radio station. Google Drive's antivirus only successfully scans files that are sized 25mb or less. Because the shows are approximately 30-60mb in size, you may see a screen like this.
Please do not be alarmed! It's just Google's way of inciting a riot (that's a joke). All Google is telling you is that their antivirus programming on Google Drive cannot scan the file because it's larger than 25mb.

Tonight, Teebz meets Lorrie Stade, one of the organizers of the St. Adolphe Hockeyville entry into the Kraft Hockeyville contest! While St. Adolphe did fall short in their bid for $250,000 in rink repairs, they will receive $25,000 for being one of the four finalists! Teebz talks to Lorrie tonight about recovering from a very busy weekend, the support they received, the work needed to bring the rink back to "awesome" from its current state, some of the fundraising ideas they have, a great story about a grant for two hockey players in the community, and more! Lorrie sticks around for the news portion of the show as well, and Teebz and Lorrie breakdown the COVID-19 outbreak in the QMJHL and how it won't affect playoffs, the debacle surrounding Laurentian University, and Lorrie poses a question to Teebz that no one has asked before!

April 8, 2021: Episode 446
Jenna and I are honoured to welcome three-time Olympians and gold medalists Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson and Monique Lamoureux-Morando to the program in the first half-hour! These two women have done pretty much everything in hockey before the age of 32 before announcing their retirements earlier this spring, and Jenna and I will talk to them about a few of the details found in their new book Dare to Make History: Chasing a Dream and Fighting for Equity which was reviewed here on HBIC! It's a very informative half-hour with the Lamoureux twins as we learn about them, hear their experiences, and get a glimpse of what their book features on the pages, so grab yourself a copy after the show tonight because they wrote an outstanding book! After a quick commercial break, Teebz and Jenna return to go over all the major hockey stories - hint: COVID-19! - from the past week!

April 1, 2021: Episode 445
Teebz and Jenna go over all over the major stories tonight that hit the headlines, along a few that didn't, from virtually every league on the planet. There are stories of racism in the WHL, recaps of NHL teams snapping streaks and falling into form, snippets of news from the ECHL, another great-but-overdue milestone in the QMJHL, news from Canada West, a KHL team coming back from voluntary suspension, a finale in the SDHL after COVID struck, a name change for an MJHL team, and a plea to help a town in Manitoba accomplish a dream! There is literally something for everyone in this episode, and we'll even tease out a major announcement for next week's show!

March 25, 2021: Episode 444
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! She 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 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!

March 18, 2021: Episode 443
Teebz and Jenna meet teammates and defensive partners Kyleigh Johnson and Maggie Mitani who anchor the Avros' blue line!

Why do they wear their chosen numbers? What do they eat on gamedays and on cheat days? What are some of their career highlights? What rules would they change? We learn all about this as we discuss the Jets and the Leafs from Tuesday, lineup changes with the injury to Beaulieu, the importance of Hellebuyck, the NHL announcing helmets ads will remain permanently moving forward, the SPHL expanding and why it's important to note this specific expansion, the new NHL-ESPN deal and what it means, U SPORTS coaches who are gonna get to meet with world-class coaches, Evander Kane news, San Jose bankruptcy news, the PWHPA having no ratings in the US, and more!

Teebz chats with former Alberta Pandas forward Regan Wright about growing up in Calgary, playing for Team Alberta, putting her name on the map with the AFHL's Calgary Fire, a pile of accolades and achievements, playing for Coach Draper and the Pandas, winning a U SPORTS National Championship, and the one thing that may surprise most people about her. Perhaps more interesting to me was learning that she's basically been a genius since childhood, her efforts in the classroom on a project she did had a major effect on a Canadian landscape, and how those good marks and hard work have led to a new challenge!

February 18, 2021: Episode 439
Teebz welcomes back Jenna and we get Jenna's exam results - SPOILER: she's smart - before the duo discuss the ESPN COVID-19 report in depth with respect to dates and player reactions. They transition to the Katie Strang report about the Arizona Coyotes that raises a ton of questions about how business is being done in the desert. There are PHWPA updates and SDHL updates on the women's hockey scene that include some include some incredible stats by former U SPORTS players. They talk about the San Jose Sharks FINancial campaign, the Toronto Maple Leafs and their epic collapse, Alex Galchenyuk playing for his 263rd team in the last 18 months, a rather terrible moment of history for the Buffalo Sabres, a few recruiting notes as the Manitoba Bisons get strong, and a homecoming for a former Manitoba Bisons forward.

February 11, 2021: Episode 438
Teebz welcomes Jason Pchajek back to the show while featuring GM Jared in his first full episode while Jenna's off making her brain smart! The three gents discuss a couple of retirement announcements, Patrik Laine being benched in Columbus, Jack Roslovic looking the second coming of Rick Nash, Pierre-Luc Dubois' debut with the Jets and how roster mismanagement is killing the mojo the Jets seemed to have had, the new bosses in Pittsburgh, and the loss of TSN radio in Winnipeg and why Bell's corporate greed likely has ended any chance of there ever being a "Bell Let's Talk" day again.

February 4, 2021: Episode 437
Teebz and Jenna hunker down and discuss the hypocrisy of Paul Maurice's rant against the media questioning Blake Wheeler's defensive efforts, Kevin Sawyer's complete dissociation for the game he's watching, the Paul Maurice spectacles stats, the Penguins' search to replace Jim Rutherford, and the Carolina Hurricanes investing a pile of money in women's hockey. From there, the duo runs through all the COVID outbreaks seen in the NHL, AHL, and the IIHF over the last week before taking task with the lack of transparency and rather inept management in the NWHL that led to their two-week bubble blowing up and suspending their mini-season. They close the show with some good news from the PWHPA and some Olympics talk on this episode.

January 28, 2021: Episode 436
Teebz and Jenna kick off the show by talking about #BellLetsTalk and how to participate along with the University of British Columbia's and Mikayla Ogrodniczuk's work in mental health initiatives and charities before digging into the Patrik Laine trade that fetched Pierre-Luc Dubois from Columbus, the asset management of the Jets, and the Jets finding a new first line through this trade and Teebz proposes a fun nickname for that line. Other stories Teebz and Jenna discuss include the Jets record while Paul Maurice squints, San Jose opting to go with new merchandise provider, Washington introducing a rather underwhelming alternate jersey, Teebz goes on a rant about how Canadian media are clamouring to chat to anyone and everyone associated with the current two-week pro women's hockey tournament yet ignored the CWHL and are ignoring U SPORTS in their own backyards, the ECHL adds another team to its membership, and the Return to Play plans for both Alberta and Manitoba.

January 21, 2021: Episode 435
Teebz and Jenna try to make sense of the 2-1-0 Winnipeg Jets who have been thoroughly outplayed in all three games, yet hold a winning record. There's a reference to Paul Maurice's current record with the Jets when he's not wearing glasses in there before they break into a discussion on Jakub Voracek ripping into reporter Mike Sielski on a conference call, the Nashville-Carolina game that was postponed due to COVID-19 protocols, Team Canada's women's camp going into a bubble and some of the notable names both at and not at camp, why Team Canada might need to change strategies when it comes to the women's program, the IIHF Men's World Hockey Championship being moved from Belarus due to safety concerns and where it might land, and why the NHL is changing pucks mid-season.

There are a few shoutouts on the show to people in hockey, a segment all about Evander Kane's financial matters, a fun laugh about travel in the NHL with respect to the age of players, and they close the show with some ECHL news!

December 31, 2020: Episode 432
It's a podcast version of The Hockey Show today as the UMFM 2020 Year-In-Review Top Twenty Extravaganza has pre-empted the show! Teebz is here to discuss the reaction people are having to blowouts at the IIHF World Junior Championship as the suggestions to change the tournament have been somewhat reasonable to downright crazy. Teebz also discusses why Jack Roslovic is making a big mistake, some of the player moves you may have missed in the NHL, and he sends 2020 off with a New Year's wish for all the listeners!

December 17, 2020: Episode 430
Teebz and Jenna play the overcautious parents to the IIHF's World Junior Championship with respect to everything they've done wrong so far in getting this tournament off the ground. Our two hosts then shift their focus to the WHL cancelling the start date to their season, whether or not the OHL will follow suit, the madness seen in the opening weekend of the ECHL, and how the NHL might navigate their season by watching another league's successes and failures. Teebz issues an apology to the San Jose Sharks, Teebz and Jenna talk about Jaromir Jagr's longevity in playing professional hockey, and they also take a quick look at having the Florida Panthers and Calgary Flames create departments specifically focused on goaltending.

We learn about how he grew up in Coaldale, Alberta before joining the HJHL's Coaldale Copperheads where he played four seasons and earned some accolades. From there, we find out how he transitioned into coaching, some of the various roles he's had while coaching, how he ended up behind the bench of a U SPORTS women's hockey program, the cancellation of the Pronghorns, the potential revival of the Pronghorns, and how Josh is proving that one can go home again by joining the Copperheads as an assistant coach!

Teebz and Jenna discuss the information presented by TSN with a look at university hockey and sports where the treatment of pain is also becoming more pharmaceutical. We take a look at the ESPN Bubble Confidential piece by Emily Kaplan and Greg Wyshynski on whether this bubble idea, for all its has produced, is worth the trouble and effort.
