On just about every show of TPS from September to June we introduce our audience to another player that is eligible for the next NHL Draft. This past year we had the pleasure of speaking with over 80 such players.
Over the course of a season I regularly get approached at Edmonton Oil Kings games by NHL scouts. Some are regular listeners to the show who have mentioned TPS to the rest of their team's sc outing staff.
Primarily it's the Draft Spotlight segment that the scouts talk to us about. We're talking to the same players that they want to know more about and often the interview we do with a specific player gets talked about. I've been asked to supply audio to teams and I've been asked in advance by clubs to ask a question of a player that they know we have coming on the show.
With that in mind, and considering today is NHL Draft Day, I thought some fans might find it handy to have a complete listing of our 2015 Draft Spotlight Segments.
If this is your first time experiencing the show, we hope this gives you an idea of what we do and that you'll be back for more on a weekly basis!
