Our Annual "In Studio" Summer is Back!
The Pipeline Show is nearing the end of our 9th 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 are back in studio and will kick off the show with the Question of the Night and more news and notes from the world of prospect hockey.
Segment 2: The 4th running of the Junior Club World Cup will take place in Russia in August. representing the CHL this time out will be the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles of the QMJHL. Head coach and General Manager Marc-Andre Dumont will join us tonight to tell us how his team has taken on the mission.
Segment 3: After a number of coaching moves in the WHL this summer, only one team has yet to solidify their bench boss heading into 2014-15. We'll discuss the changes with tonight's CHL INSIDER: Andy Neal from WHL on Shaw TV. Which teams should we expect the biggest changes from?
Segment 4: The University of North Dakota will be well represented tonight as we present our fourth IN STUDIO edition of The Pipeline Show this summer. Both are local products who played as defencemen, one has become a coach while the other is just starting his professional career.
Segment 5: Head Coach Dave Hakstol has appeared on TPS several times over the last 9 years, more than once as part of our Frozen Four Coaches Show. This will mark the first time we have been able to host the Warburg, AB native in studio though as he returns home during his summer vacation.
Segment 6:Plus we'll be joined by outgoing North Dakota captain Dillon Simpson. The blueliner was drafted by the Edmonton Oilers a few years ago but stayed for his full 4-year college eligibility. during his time at UND his club reached the Frozen Four twice.
