Just a note on the blog… I’ve taken a couple of weeks away from the blog here. I’m trying to figure out the way to properly balance what unique things I can offer here versus what we do at Swift Current Online. I think there’s a lot of things I can do on the blog that isn’t just traditional news so I’m going to try to focus on that while also connecting the blog to the news we do on Swift Current Online. I’m not sure if that will involve big changes but I guarantee you the blog will remain active.
That’s especially true this week as I’ll be in Calgary for the WHL awards lunch on Wednesday where Adam Lowry is nominated for the Four Broncos Memorial Trophy. I will also be covering the bantam draft extensive on Thursday. I will likely do that in Swift Current so that I am able to talk to the draft picks myself over the phone. I think it worked out well that way last year. It’s a fun day and there will be a lot of excitement.
We’ve had a lot of Broncos news over at Swift Current Online including the talk of Dillon Heatherington winning gold at the U18s and the latest NHL Central Scouting rankings for Heatherington, Colby Cave, Levi Bews and Eetu Laurikainen. That’s always a place to go for the latest Bronco news and I will work to compliment that here as we fully move into off season AKA golf season in the southwest.
The only local sports talk show in southwest Saskatchewan hits the air tonight.
Home Hardware’s Overtime runs from 6pm to 7pm every Monday night live from Boston Pizza’s lounge in Swift Current and on The Eagle 94.1 FM.
On tonight’s show we’ll preview the WHL Bantam Draft which is set for Thursday in Calgary. We’ll talk to Broncos Assistant GM Jamie Porter on their preparations for the draft, what he thinks of this year’s class and what the Broncos might be looking for. We’ll also be joined by WHL Manager of Player Development and Recruitment Tyler Boldt for his perspective on the draft. Shawn Mullin, Terry Pavely and Ryan Switzer will talk about some of the pressing issues of the day including the start of the NHL playoffs this week with a few local players involved.
