    Brady welcomes one of his favourite artists in Colicchie. This is a real dream come true. Colicchie's music helped Brady through some of his darkest days of addiction and maybe even more so now in recovery. Pittsburgh rapper Colicchie rose up from years of struggling with addiction to find success and hope in his music. A rapid decline into drug addiction in his teenage years led to troubles with the law and multiple stints in rehab in his early twenties. After getting clean at age 23, Colicchie began writing raps, turning stories from his tumultuous life into confessional, unflinchingly honest songs. Themes of addiction, depravity, and recovery came up time and time again in songs like "Drug Addiction," "Recover or Die," and "To Whom It May Concern." A video for "Drug Addiction" went viral in 2017, reaching millions of listeners, many of whom were struggling with addiction themselves and took inspiration from Colicchie's story.

    Harlan Kingfisher is a husband, a dad of 4 and First Nations hockey player from Sturgeon Lake Saskatchewan. Playing hockey growing up and eventually moving around Canada playing junior and college hockey had such a positive impact on his life. First Nations hockey in Canada isn't just a sport it's a cultural celebration. Nothing beats a game where the stands are packed with fans cheering for their home Rez, pow wow playing on the speakers before plays, bannock and stew being served at the concession, sweetgrass getting lit and smudging the sticks before a big game. Hockey is good medicine and that's where he got the idea for Smudge the blades apparel. He wants to celebrate First Nations hockey and be able to bring laughter and pride when wearing your Smudge the Blades gear. It's also his dream to be able to give back to the First Nation hockey community so that it can have the same positive impact on other Native kids that it had on him. A portion of the proceeds will be given back to help First Nation youth across Canada purchase new hockey equipment so they can have a chance to Smudge, Snipe and Celly.

    Johansen debuted in the NHL with the Columbus Blue Jackets on Oct. 7, 2011, against the Nashville Predators, and would make history that season: He was the first player in the League to score his team's first three game-winning goals in a season since Brian Propp of the Philadelphia Flyers in 1982-83. He got his first NHL point with an assist Oct. 22, 2011, against the Ottawa Senators and scored his first League goal, a game-winner, Oct. 25, 2011, against Ty Conklin of the Detroit Red Wings. In 2012-13 Johansen led the Blue Jackets in face-off wins with 272 and scored his first NHL shootout goal on March 10 at Detroit. Johansen was the youngest NHL player to score 30 goals in 2013-14 and joined Rick Nash and Geoff Sanderson as players with 30-goal seasons in Blue Jackets history. The center led Columbus in goals (33), points (63), multipoint games (16), shots on goal (237) and faceoff wins (692). Johansen made his Stanley Cup Playoff debut April 16, 2012, and scored his first NHL playoff goal three days later; both came against the Pittsburgh Penguins in the first round. In 2014-15, Johansen became the fourth player in Blue Jackets history to have 70 points in a season, joining Nick Foligno (2014-15), Nash (2008-09) and Ray Whitney (2002-03). He had an NHL season-best 13-game point streak from Dec. 18, 2014-Jan. 17, 2015. Johansen was named NHL All-Star Game MVP after getting two goals and four points on Jan. 25, 2015, at Nationwide Arena in Columbus. Traded by Columbus to the Nashville Predators on Jan. 6, 2016, for Seth Jones, Johansen had eight goals and 34 points in 42 games with the Predators in 2015-16. He had a goal and an assist in his Nashville debut Jan. 8, 2016, against the Colorado Avalanche. Johansen had 13 points (three goals, 10 assists) in 14 Stanley Cup Playoff games for Nashville in the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs before being sidelined with a serious leg injury sustained in Game 4 of the Western Conference Final against the Anaheim Ducks. He required surgery and was unable to play during the Cup Final, when the Predators lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins in six games. However, he rebounded with 54 points (15 goals, 39 assists) during the regular season and 14 points (five goals, nine assists) in 14 playoff games. Johansen was selected by Columbus with the No. 4 pick in the 2010 NHL Draft after scoring 25 goals and 69 points for Portland of the Western Hockey League in 2009-10. He ranked second among WHL rookies in assists (44) and points (69) that season and led rookies with 12 assists and 18 points during the 2009-10 playoffs. He led Portland with 40 goals and 92 points in 2010-11, and was the league's top playoff scorer with 28 points (13 goals), helping his team reach the league final. Johansen helped Canada finish second at the 2011 IIHF World Junior Championship and was named to the tournament all-star team after scoring three goals and nine points in seven games.

    Brady welcomes Sheldon Souray to the show and they discuss his life in hockey and how he overcame his addiction.   Sheldon Souray (born July 13, 1976) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey defenceman who played 13 seasons in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the New Jersey Devils, Montreal Canadiens, Edmonton Oilers, Dallas Stars, and Anaheim Ducks. He was best known for his heavy slapshot, once setting a previous unofficial NHL record for the hardest recorded shot at the Oilers' 2009 Skills Competition. Souray was born in Elk Point, Alberta, to Richard Souray and Lillian Parenteau. He is of Métis descent and has one sister, two years older. At a young age, Souray moved with his family from Fishing Lake Métis Settlement to a small community in Alberta in order for his sister to attend school. In another two years, they moved again so that Souray could play organized sports. While still in elementary school, Souray's parents divorced; he first lived with his mother before moving in with his father at age nine. Growing up, he attended Archbishop O'Leary Catholic High School with former fellow Oiler Fernando Pisani. Souray has a tattoo of a Métis Chief in full headdress on his arm. He says the tattoo is meant as a reminder to himself to be a positive role model for Native and Métis children, as he himself is proud of his Métis heritage.   Brought to you by: pucksupport.com - Promo Code save20% @truetemperhockey
