Our Annual "In Studio" Summer is Back!
The Pipeline Show has officially kicked of our 10th 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: Guy and Dean will set up the show with the Question of the Night and run through Coming Down the Pipe and more.
Segment 2: The Ontario Hockey League is gearing up for another exciting Major Junior season. Mike Farwell is the colour analyst for the Kitchener Rangers and will join us to update the progress of that club and other stories around the league.
Segment 3: In the WHL, is the motto this season for the Lethbridge Hurricanes going to be "The More Things Change, the More They Stay The Same"? New coaches but the team is already dealing with camp no shows and at least one trade demand. Paul Kingsmith from Global TV in Lethbridge will explain.
Segment 4: Former NHL All-Star goalie John Vanbiesbrouck is back as the GM and Director of Hockey Ops for the USHL's Muskegon Lumberjacks. We'll ask him where his interest in junior hockey, specifically in the USHL, came from and also focus on the team he's putting on the ice in 2014-15.
Segment 5: We'll head to Halifax to get caught up with Willy Palov of the Halifax Chronicle-Herald, the beat writer that covers the Mooseheads. Willy's annual "QMJHL Rookies To Watch" list is out and of course we'll ask about the Herd too.
Segment 6: THe Edmonton Oil Kings hold their annual pre-season invitational tournament this weekend. We'll hear from head coach Steve Hamilton, veterans Curtis Lazar and Brett Pollock as well as newly signed Tyson Gruninger.
