Continuing With Season 12 of TPS!
The Pipeline Show continues our 12th season on the air at TSN 1260 Edmonton. We hope that you will join us all season long as we cover the CHL, CJHL, USHL and the NCAA plus the World Junior Championship, Frozen Four, and the NHL Draft.
Segment 1: Guy Flaming and Taylor Medak along with Hernan Salas, will spend the first segment setting up the rest of the show. The Question of the Night leads us off and we'll have time to touch on some current events.
Segment 2: We will speak once again with Cass Bruni from HockeyProspect.com as the 2016 World Junior A Challenge is about to begin in Bonnyville, AB. A number of notable 2017 draft eligible players will be there plus we will touch on some other key guys as well.
Segment 3: The Kamloops Blazers are in Edmonton to take on the Oil Kings in what is also the annual Teddy Bear Toss event for Santas Anonymous. We will speak with the GM of the Blazers, Stu MacGregor, about the team he has assembled this season.
Segment 4: We start our 2017 World Junior Previews with a look at Team Russia. To do that we will count on the assistance of Russian hockey writer Slava Malamud. Are the Russians headed for the podium once again?
Segment 5: The 2017 World Junior A Challenge deserves its own preview and for that we have recruited the voice of the Bonnyville Pontiacs, Robb Hunter. USA has dominated the tournament over the years but Canada West returns as defending champions.
Segment 6: We will end the show by hearing a conversation that Corey Graham recently had on TSN 1260 with Craig Button, TSN's Director of Scouting. A large portion of the conversation was WHL orientated so we will share that portion with our TPS audience.
