Coming Down the Pipe Tonight!!!

Who are the teams to watch in the WHL as they get set for the post season? Guy and I will discuss the eastern conference tonight and welcome Tri City G.M. Bob Tory to the show for the western conference perspective.

As Aaron Vickers from Future Considerations reported earlier, Mikael Tam has been suspended for a hit from behind by the QMJHL. Tam if you'll remember is the player who was knocked silly by Patrice Cormier who was benched by the league for the rest of the season. Does this prove that hockey players learn nothing from previous experience?

We also plan on touching on some of the top Russian prospects for the upcoming draft. Check back for Top 5 Tuesday later today.

As for our guest list, Kevin Marsh is an assistant coach with the Spruce Grove Saints - the top Junior A team in the country - as well as an instructor with Pipeline Show supporter The Hockey Program so we'll get his thoughts on the AJHL playoffs as well as some upcoming events at The Hockey Program.

Nick Bjugstad is the top rated high school hockey prospect for the 2010 draft, and he's a big boy. We'll introduce you to Nick, who should be graduating next year, but he'll be busy playing for the Minnesota Golden Gophers after accelerating his studies so he can graduate a year earlier.

Patrik Killeen is a name Penguin fans should start to get to know. He was a 6th round pick 2 years ago and his having a terrific year on an average team from Brampton of the OHL.

And finally, our first guest of the night will be Ken Schott, a writer who covers the ECAC conference of the NCAA. The playoffs are underway, were there any big upsets? Who should represent the conference in the Frozen Four?

The answers to these questions and more tonight on The Pipeline Show, where the future of hockey plays here...now.

Listen live on the TEAM 1260 in the Edmonton area, or online through www.thepipelineshow.com. If you have a thought or question for Guy, myself or any of our guests, you can pipe up by dropping us a line at pipeup@theteam1260.com.
