Our Annual "In Studio" Summer is Back!
The Pipeline Show is nearing the end of our 9th season on the air at TSN 1260 Edmonton. But we don't take the summers off here on TPS. The off season allows us to get creative and one thing we have done the last fe years is bring a couple local players or coaches, scouts or media guys in studio with us. It's proven to be poplular with our guests and our audience so we're thrilled to be doing it again this year.
Segment 1: Hockey Canada has a new head honcho, there are new General Managers in Portland and Prince George too. Guy and Dean will discuss current events.
Segment 2: Speaking of the Prince George Cougars, Todd Harkins was officially named as the club's new GM earlier today. We'll speak with the former NHLer about taking on the new role on a full time basis.
Segment 3: We'll head south to the campus of the Minnesota State University Mavericks to catch up with head coach Mike Hastings. After two seasons on the bench, the Mavericks have won a WCHA title and have been to the NCAA tournament both times. How does the team look for 2014-15?
Segment 4: We'll have a pair of Alaska Nanooks on board for our third IN STUDIO edition of The Pipeline Show this summer. Both are local products who played in the Alberta Junior Hockey League before going on to the NCAA. Both are also prospects for NHL teams.
Segment 5: Forward Cody Kunyk was a force for the Nanooks over his 4-year NCAA career. The former Sherwood Park Crusader was then signed by the Tampa Bay Lightning and was then resigned again by the Bolts just last week.
Segment 6:Plus we'll be joined by Nanooks defenceman Colton Parayko. The massive blueliner was drafted by the St. Louis Blues last year and is fresh off that club's summer development camp. He played out his AJHL career with the Ft. McMurray Oil Barons.
