Tuesday Review

This past week on The Pipeline show we covered everything from the top goalie in the AHL to a college hockey player back from the brink of suicide. You can hear all the interviews at our website.

Guy and I started out making fun of my cheesy moustache I'm growing for Movember which raises money for prostate cancer. Trust me it's pretty bad, you can check it out and laugh for yourself on Global Edmonton (240 on Bell Express view) We then moved onto the Canada/Russia ADT challenge, whether Angelo Esposito has a chance to make Team Canada for the WJC and how Guy would change the event, which you can also read here. Guy also dished out praise and pointed out flaws in Flaming Hot/Flaming Not, and I suggested what prospect you should pick up in your fantasy hockey league.

Segment two we welcomed ISS head scout Mike Oke to the program. We discussed a number of players for the upcoming draft from Magnus Svensson-Paajarvi of Sweden to the U.S.A's Jeremy Morin to Ryan Ellis of Windsor.

Speaking of draft prospects, Guy and I also spoke to Swift Current Bronco forward Cody Eakin. How is the 6th overall bantam draft pick from 2006 living up to his expectations? Injuries have derailed him at key times in his young career but the hard worker is hoping to finish strong this year and hear his name called at the draft in Montreal.

The second hour started with an extremely inspirational story. Jacques Lamoureux plays for the Air Force Academy Falcons. He's 2nd in NCAA scoring with a game in hand. That's impressive but it's not the inspirational part. 5 Years ago Lamoureux stood on a ledge about to take his own life. Why? How did he overcome his depression? Is he looking for a pro career after college. Take some time to here his comments and you won't be disappointed. I do however apologize in advance for the bad phone connection.

Guy stumped our listeners this week with Bad Ass trivia, see if you would have won, and who knows you might get one of the questions next week. To wrap up the show we spoke with the hottest goalie right now in the AHL, Devan Dubnyk of the Springfield Falcons. The Oilers 2004 first round draft pick recently recorded his first shut out. Dubnyk also told us what kind of boost the Falcons got when teammate Liam Reddox was recalled by the Oilers and scored his first goal.
