Season 12 of TPS continues online as "The PipeCast"!
The Pipeline Show continues our 12th season now as "The Pipe-Cast". We hope that you will join us all season long as we cover the CHL, CJHL, USHL and the NCAA plus the World Junior Championship, Frozen Four, and the NHL Draft.
Introduction: Guy Flaming has a quick intro to the show to allow more time with the guests of the day.
Guest 1: We begin with the voice of the Regina Pats, Phil Andrews, who reflects on the big announcement that the 100th edition of the Memorial Cup tournament will be hosted by his club in 2018. How long has Phil had to sit on the news and what will the team look like next year? I asked, he answered.
Guest 2: Next, in our NCAA update, analyst Dave Starman looks at the rising power of Western Michigan, the slumping North Dakota Fighting Hawks, the new #1 ranked Denver Pioneers and some key free agent seniors that NHL teams will have in their sights.
Guest 3: Our 2017 Draft Spotlight finds USHL defenceman Ben Mirageas of the Bloomington Thunder. The #48 ranked player in North America according to NHL Central Scouting, the defence-first blueliner is one to watch this year before he heads to Providence College to join the Friars.
Guest 4: Inside the AJHL has Guy talking with Brooks Bandits sniper Oliver Chau. The forward is an Ontario product and is committed to Massachusetts to play for the Minutemen.
