Welcome to SEASON 11 of TPS!
The Pipeline Show is kicking off our 11th season on the air at TSN 1260 Edmonton. It's playoff season everywhere and you know that The Pipeline Show will be all over them.
Segment 1: Guy Flaming and Dean Millard, along with Taylor Medak, will spend the first segment setting up the rest of the show. The Question of the Night leads us off and on Saturdays there will also be the Friday Night CHL Playoff Recap.
Segment 2: USA Hockey is on the ice in Lake Placid this week and they have narrowed their WJC camp down to 32 players. We'll get an update from NHL.com scribe Mike Morreale to see who has impressed him from USA, Sweden and Finland.
Segment 3: Hockey Canada has held their U17, U18 and U20 camps in Calgary and TPS producer Taylor Medak has been on hand to help broadcast some of those games on Fast Hockey. The Ivan Hlinka squad will be named before the show and Taylor can tell us all if they got it right or not.
Segment 4: Our summer "In Studio" series continues and in the process, we get a chance to have an hour long preview of the 2015-16 Saskatoon Blades.
Segment 5: Colin Priestner is a Managing Partner of the Blades and can give us the management perspective on how the club has evolved over the past two seasons and what we can expect this coming year.
Segment 6: Joining Priestner today will be the Blades' Western Region Director of Scouting Dan Tencer. A familiar name in this neck of the woods, Dan can give us an account of what his daily routine and responsibilities are for the club as the new season inches closer.
