Welcome to SEASON 11 of TPS!
The Pipeline Show has kicked off our 11th season on the air at TSN 1260 Edmonton. Training camps are just around the corner and of course August brings the Ivan Hlinka and Junior Club World Cup as well...
Segment 1: Guy Flaming and Dean Millard, along with Taylor Medak, will spend the first segment setting up the rest of the show. The Question of the Night leads us off and on Saturdays there will also be the Friday Night CHL Playoff Recap.
Segment 2: New for 2015-16: The Pipeline Show has joined forces with HockeyProspect.com to present a weekly scouting look at the 2016 Draft Class. Tonight we will hear from QMJHL based Jérome Berube who will give us the run down on some players from that league we need to know for 2016.
Segment 3: Continuing our WHL team previews, this time we head to Vancouver Island for a closer look at the Victoria Royals. The team was a contender last season but lose some key players from that squad. Can the Royals continue to push for a division title? We'll ask the voice fo the Royals, Marlon Martens.
Segment 4: Our summer "In Studio" series continues and today we will speak with a pair of NHL scouts. Want to know what the job is really like? How to become a scout? Some tales from the road? You've come to the right place.
Segment 5: Bob Green is now the head amateur scout for the Edmonton Oilers. Before that, Green was behind the success of the Edmonton Oil Kings and the Medicine Hat Tigers during his tenure in the WHL. How different are things at the next level for a scout?
Segment 6: Joining Green today will be another scout, this one a local bird-dog that works for the Minnesota Wild. His name is Paul Charles and he's a frequent visitor to Rexall Place for WHL games and the Wild are littered with players he would have seen during his time with them.
