Continuing on with Season 11 of TPS!
The Pipeline Show is now well into our 11th season on the air at TSN 1260 Edmonton. Be with us all season long as we cover the regular seasonin CHL, CJHL, USHL and the NCAA plus the World Junior Championship, Frozen Four, and the NHL Draft.
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 WHL Recap.
Segment 2: It's been way too long since we went around the QMJHL with the assistance of TVA reporter Andrée-Anne Barbeau. A couple of teams have started to separate themselves from the pack - are Val d'Or and Rouyn-Noranda the best teams in the QMJHL?
Segment 3: The first of two 2016 Draft Spotlight segments tonight takes us to the NCAA where Wisconsin Badgers freshman Matt Jurusik has been one of the bright spots in another challenging season for Bucky. Passed over in his first year of eligibility, is Jurusik's play in the NCAA enough to get him drafted this June?
Segment 4: TSN Director of Scouting, Craig Button returns to TPS with a focus this weekend on undersized players in the Class of 2016 that shouldn't be overlooked; Alex DeBrincat, Matthew Phillips, Brayden Burke, Kyle Maksimovich and Maxime Fortier.
Segment 5: Our second 2016 Draft Spotlight will shine on a member of the Sarnia Sting named Jordan Kyrou. The forward is slotted in the #45 spot by NHL Central Scouting's North American ranking in the Class of 2016.
Segment 6: And finally, the voice of the Red Deer Rebels, Cam Moon, will help close out the show with a discussion about the WHL's 50th season and the fan vote to select the top 50 players of all time. We might also chat a bit about the Rebels too.
