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 and then begin to announce the winners of the 2014 PIPE-ie Awards. 10 Categories with 5 nominees in each.
Segment 2: Who will win the PIPE-ie award for the Top Forward, Top Defenceman, Top Goalie, Top Agitator and Top Rookie from 2013-14?
Segment 3: Who will win the PIPE-es for Top Coach, Top Team, Top Single Game Performance, Top Arena Atmosphere and Top Story?
Segment 4: Our 12th edition of "In Studio" this summer will be an all-goalie affair. Edmonton Oil Kings goalie coach Dustin Schwartz will be in studio to revisit his own WHL days followed by a career at the UofA with the Golden Bears and explain how he's become one of the top goalie coaches in Canada.
Segment 5: Ty Rimmer turned a strong WHL career into a professional contract last year within the Edmonton Oilers organization and he parlayed that into another one for this year. We'll speak with him about making the jump to the minor leagues and more.
Segment 6: Last but not least, another local member of the Brandon Wheat Kings, Jordan Papirny joins us in studio for the second straight summer. The Edmonton native made a name for himself last year, especially in the playoffs, for the Wheaties and now loks to backstop that club to even higher levels this year.
