This year’s MJHL All-Star Game will be heard on NCI FM, the organizing committee announced Tuesday.
The game is set for Wednesday, January 19 at the Swan River Centennial Arena, and will include two popular names behind the mic.
Former Winnipeg Jet and broadcasting veteran Curt Keilback will handle play-by-play duties, while sportswriter/broadcaster Scott Taylor will join him in the booth.
“This is a tremendous opportunity for our station,” NCI Sales Manager Michael Fabian said in a statement.
“Our listeners are the real winners here. I believe that this may be the first time that the all star game will be available to every hockey enthusiast in Manitoba, and the bordering cities from Ontario, Saskatchewan and North Dakota.”
NCI FM will broadcast a total of 15 MJHL regular-season games.
