Our Annual "In Studio" Summer is Back!
The Pipeline Show has officially (but quietly) 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 Quebec Remparts are hosting the 2015 Mastercard Memorial Cup. We'll check in with Kathleen Lavoie from Le Soleil to see if the team is shaping up to be a true contender or if they have work to do in order to not just reply on their status as hosts.
Segment 3: The annual pre-season tournament hosted by the Edmonton Oil Kings will be this weekend. One of the six teams who will be involved is the Swift Current Broncos. We'll ask the voice of the Broncos, Shawn Mullin, how the team has looked so far in camp.
Segment 4: Our 14th edition of "In Studio" this summer will include three players who play at three different positions. Colin Smith was a standout with the Kamloops Blazers during his WHL days. Last year, the Colorado Avalanche prospects skated with the AHL's Lake Erie Monsters.
Segment 5: For years he was THE face of the franchise for the Edmonton Oil Kings. Now Mark Pysyk is trying to build off an impressive year split between the Buffalo Sabres and the Rochester Americans.
Segment 6: Rounding out the trio tonight will be former Medicine Hat Tigers netminder Tyler Bunz. After suffering a serious throat injury last year, Bunz is back on the ice and fresh off a friendly hockey tour across Australia. What's instore for the Edmonton Oilers prospect in 2014-15?
