Countdown to the 2015 NHL Entry Draft!
The Pipeline Show is now more than midway through our 10th season on the air at TSN 1260 Edmonton. It's playoff season everywhere and you know that The Pipeline Show will be all over them.
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: It was a record setting year for the USHL in terms of players selected from that league at the 2015 NHL Draft. We'll speak with USHL Commissioner Bob Fallen about that and about the number of coaching changes in the junior loop for ths coming season.
Segment 3: The Vancouver Giants have a new coach in veteran Lorne Molleken and also took part in the CHL Import Draft today. Giants GM Scott Bonner will join us to discuss the big moves for his club and what they mean heading into the 2015-16 season.
Segment 4: Getting his thoughts on the NHL Draft, the CHL import draft and anything else prospect related, we'll speak with our good friend Ryan Kennedy of The Hockey News.
Segment 5: The Brandon Wheat Kings will be the odds on favourite entering the WHL season. GM Kelly McCrimmon is scheduled to join us to talk about the CHL Import Draft and his decision to return to his junior club rather than accept a high profile job with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Segment 6: Finally, we'll close out the show with the GM of the Edmonton Oil Kings, Randy Hansch. The club added two players today via the CHL Import Draft to go with a couple of higher profile signings in the last few months. Has the outlook for the team in 2015-16 changed since the end of 2014-15?
