SEASON 11 of TPS Continues on!
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:The Cape Breton Screaming Eagles are expected to be a strong team in the QMJHL this season and are off to 4-3-1 start to the season. The voice of the Eagles, Patrick McNeil will be our guest to update us on the latest news around the team.
Segment 3: The only radio voice the Plymouth Whalers ever had, however, Pete Krupsky did not move to Flint when the team did. Instead, he's now become the voice of the relocated US-NTDP and calls the USHL games for both the U17 and U18 squads. We'll talk to him about the differences from the OHL to the USHL and more.
Segment 4: We are thrilled to once again have TSN Director of Scouting Craig Button back on the show for another season. This weekend is the first segment of the new year and like last year, Craig will share his perspective on a number of different players eligible for the 2016 NHL Draft.
Segment 5: Our 2016 Draft Spotlight segment today finds a talented defenceman from the Swift Current Broncos named Max Lajoie. It's early in the season but the buzz around the draft watchers is that the Broncos blueliner could have the potential to crack the top 30 next June.
Segment 6: And finally, life begins anew in Erie as the Otters take to the ice without Connor McDavid. Despite the loss, the Erie Otters have stormed out of the gate to start the new season going 3-0. Play-by-play broadcaster Aaron Cooney will tell us about the new look squad and if they can continue on their torrid pace.
