The Pipeline Show is now months into our 10th season on the air at TSN 1260 Edmonton. The CHL, CJHL and USHL seasons are off and running plus the NCAA college hockey schedule begins in mid-October. You know that we're on top of it all.
Segment 1: Guy and Dean will set up the show with the Tim Hortons' Question of the Night and run through "Coming Down the Pipe" and more. The first segment on Saturday's includes a Friday Night WHL recap and a U Weight Loss weigh in minute too.
Segment 2: CHL Insider Phil Andrews, the play by play broadcaster of the Regina Pats, will share his perspective on one of the hottest clubs in the WHL. New head coach John Paddock has the team playing better than fans have seen from the Pats in a long time. Can they keep it up with Morgan Klimchuk away at WJC camp?
Segment 3: The 2014 World Junior A Challenge begins this weekend in Kindersley, SK. One of the five countries taking part is Denmark who is sending their best U20 players to the event. Skaters like Oliver Bjorkstrand, Mads Eller and Alex True will leap frog from the WJAC directly into the 2015 WJC in Toronto/Montreal. To tell us how he views the two tournaments we'll speak with Halifax Mooseheads star forward and Winnipeg Jets 1st round selection Nik Ehlers.
Segment 4: "On the Button" with TSN Director of Scouting Craig Button is back as the analyst prepares to take in the WJAC first hand. We'll ask Craig who he is going to key in on during his stay in Kindersley. We'll also touch on the upcoming WJC and specifically with the Czech Republic and Sweden. .
Segment 5: Our 2015 Draft Spotlight segment will shine on forward Brock Boeser of the USHL's Waterloo Blackhawks. The power forward is also representing Team USA at the WJAC in Kindersley, SK. He's been given an "A" rating from NHL Central Scouting making him a player we should consider for the 1st round in 2015.
Segment 6: Last but not least, we will close out a very busy show with Global Sports reporter Paul Kingsmith. Paul can shed some light on the firings of Lethbridge Hurricanes coach and General Manager this week and the hiring of Peter Anholt to take over both jobs. Is it the first step on the road back to respectability for the 'Canes?
