Welcome to the Off-Season, TPS Style!
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: Hockey Canada has their U20 and U18 camps starting in the very near future. We'll preview the Ivan Hlinka and 2016 WJC tryouts with the help of head scout Ryan Jankowski.
Segment 3: We are wrapping up our 10th season and to celebrate, all month long we have been presenting a TPS Classic interview from our vault. This time we are going to go back to Season FOUR and a conversation we had with then GM of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Brian Burke. Burke took us back to the draft where he orchestrated draft day deals in order to slect both Daniel and Henrik Sedin, plus we previewed the 2009 NHL draft for the Leafs.
Segment 4: Our summer "In Studio" series continues with former Edmonton Oil Kings teammates who are well into their professional careers.
Segment 5: Former Oil Kings captain and current defenceman with the Buffalo Sabres Mark Pysyk will bring us up to speed on his career and his health after a pretty serious scare at the end of last season.
Segment 6: Joining Pysyk will be for Oil Kings center Travis Ewanyk. Originally drafted by the Edmonton Oilers, Ewanyk was recently acquired by the Ottawa Senators and will be looking to make a mark with his new organization this fall.
